During World War I, in an unnamed country, a soldier named Tamino is sent by the Queen of the Night to rescue her daughter Pamina from the clutches of the supposedly evil Sarastro. But all is not as it seems.
When talking to the Earl of Southampton, Shakespeare repeatedly addresses him as "Your Grace". When addressing an Earl, the correct form is "My Lord" (only a Duke would be addressed as Your Grace). Shakespeare spent enough time around nobility to be well aware of the correct title to use. See more »
Kenneth Branagh never disappoints and here, portraying Shakespeare in his final years, he truly excels. A beautifully paced drama that showed Sir Kenneth' s great ability to engage his audience from the very beginning. A million miles from the nightmare of school time shakespeare. A heartfelt thank you to Sir Kenneth, you did it again!
