All is True (out May 9) is a largely fictionalised account of William Shakespeare's later years as he reflects on his work and mends rifts within his family. I struggled to see the point of this. Shakespeare is a boring character and the film gets bogged down in not-so-interesting diversions (such as his garden and obsession to have a male grandchild). Grade: C+.
