Impressively cast and beautifully filmed, opening at The Ross on Friday, June 7, ALL IS TRUE takes an elegiac look at Shakespeare's final days. In ALL IS TRUE Branagh and Elton do what the Bard did himself: take something-be it someone else's idea, an historical fact, or a recent event-and mash it up with original material, to fashion an entertainment that feels real. –Andrea Gronvall, The Chicago Reader in a mesmerizing meditation on Shakespeare's last days, director-star Kenneth Branagh shuns the idea of the Bard as a literary rock star to find the flawed, touchingly human man inside. –Peter Travers, Rolling Stone In this lovely ode to a literary master, Branagh shows us what his hero always understood - that life may be an endlessly unfolding mystery, but in art, all is true. –Ella Taylor, NPR ALL IS TRUE is showing at The Ross on Friday, June 7 through Thursday, June 20. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated ALL IS TRUE PG-13 (for thematic elements, suggestive material, and language). This program is being presented with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. The year is 1613, Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground, and devastated, Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face a troubled past and a neglected family. Haunted by the death of his only son Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationships with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as husband and father. His very personal search for the truth uncovers secrets and lies within a family at war.
