Judi Dench is his wife Anne Hathaway, wearied into resilient impassivity by grief, the unfairness of life and an awful secret. Ian McKellen has a colossal, emphatically wigged cameo as the ageing Earl of Southampton. All Is True is sentimental, theatrical, likable — and unfashionable. There are certain structural similarities between All Is True and Upstart Crow, although William and Anne are more muted and autumnal here. The stroppiness of the daughter — in this case Judith, sister of Susanna — continues unabated, but is repurposed dramatically. Dench is enigmatic and stoic as Anne; and Kathryn Wilder is an angry and unreconciled Judith.
Including movies in your lessons can help enhance learning and increase student interest while providing direct instruction on the topic. Although there are pros and cons to including movies in lesson plans , you can ensure that the movies you choose have the learning impact you desire.

John Berryman, hailed as an American poet of remarkable insight and talent, sustained a life-long passion for Shakespeare matched by only a few. Much like Keats, Berryman had a consuming appetite for all things Shakespeare that shaped and nurtured his own writing, compelling him to cultivate his own poetic voice. Berryman won the Charles Oldham Shakespeare Scholarship at Cambridge University in when he was just 23 years old, and went on to give venerated lectures on Shakespeare at the finest institutions, including Harvard and Princeton, while maintaining a position on the faculty of the University of Minnesota. As his reputation as a distinguished lecturer developed, so too did his reputation as a gifted poet in his own right, culminating in the publication of Homage to Mistress Broadstreet , praised by Edmund Wilson as "the most distinguished long poem by an American since The Waste Land. With Shakespeare always foremost on his mind, Berryman worked tirelessly on organizing his decades of research into one definitive book to be called Shakespeare's Reality.
But the point remains, even when the Duke, here a sickly old gang boss played by Hugo Weaving , is grumbling about roots and remembering where he came from. And I have to say, after a fashion, he makes it work. Duke is in the last days of presiding over his empire.
