Talk Cinema No. 4
Mixing Hollywood flair with the element of surprise, Talk Cinema offers sneak previews of new independent and foreign films from Cannes, Sundance, Toronto and other internationally ranked film festivals, personally selected by nationally recognized film critic Harlan Jacobson. His selections may include an award-winning drama, an outrageous indie comedy, a provocative documentary or the next breakout hit. Audiences arriving at the theater may not know in advance what will be screened and are among the first to see new movies and then engage in critical discussions led by film scholars and special guests.
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 doing so, 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.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh, 2019. UK. 101 minutes.
