ALL IS TRUE Opening at the Cinema Art Theater
Starting on June 7, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will take the viewer to a time in Shakespeare’s life in which little is known and much is disputed with Kenneth Branagh’s speculative and engrossing drama “All Is True.” Branagh stars as the Bard himself.
The year is 1613, and 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. [2019, UK, 101 minutes, Rated: PG-13].
“The performances are excellent,” states Michael Phillips of “The Chicago Tribune.” Ella Jenkins of “NPR.com” describes the film as, “wistful and melancholy, spiced with occasional bursts of antic comedy…[a] lovely ode to a literary master.”
Screening times are 4 pm and 7 pm on Friday (June 7), 4 pm and 7 pm on Saturday (June 8), 4 pm on Sunday (June 9), 3 pm on Monday (June 10), 4 pm and 7 pm on Wednesday (June 12), 4 pm and 7 pm on Thursday (June 13). Admission is $8 for members and $11 for future members. Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets online.
