Funny, passionate and exciting: MUSE OF FIRE will change the way you feel about Shakespeare forever. This unique feature documentary follows two actors, Dan Poole and Giles Terera, as they travel the world to discover everything they can about tackling the greatest writer of them all. Consulting a host of helpful luminaries along the way, including Ian McKellen, James Earl Jones, Judi Dench, and Tom Hiddleston, their exciting road trip takes them to Denmark with Jude Law, Hollywood with Baz Luhrmann, a prison in Berlin and Shakespeare's home in Stratford-upon-Avon. Admitting that they often struggled to understand the Bard, even finding him frightening, a host of today's top actors speak openly about their early encounters with the most famous storyteller in history. Dan and Giles enthusiastically set about tackling the fear and debunking the myth, showing us how Shakespeare can be incredible fun. MUSE OF FIRE is a heartfelt and inspiring film that aims to demystify and illuminate Shakespeare's work for just about anyone: from actors, directors, theatre-goers, students, to the person on the street.
