Photograph supplied

A film about William Shakespeare starring Judi Dench, Kenneth Branagh and Ian McKellen will be screened by the Bermuda International Film Festival next week.

All is True is a portrait of the playwright during the last three years of his life, as he leaves London and returns to his family in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Biff, which will screen the film at its monthly film series, BIFFFlix, describes it as a family drama, detective story and quiet reflection on a life dedicated to art, told with warmth and wry humour.

A spokesman said: “Ultimately, it is the uplifting tale of a man who journeys from darkness and loss to a renewed appreciation of the richness and value of life, allowing him to play out his final act in peace.”

All is True will screen on Wednesday at 6.30pm at the Speciality Cinema. Tickets, $15, are on sale now at www.ptix.bm, or at the cinema box office.

The film is rated PG-13. The running time is 101 minutes.
