What a beautifully told story that makes you appreciate the person who was the world's greatest playwright. In our modern commercialized world Shakespeare has been reduced to a brand with which no one has any affinity. This beautiful movie brings you the artist behind the words of Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, MacBeth and so many other treasured works. In one scene, "Shakespeare's puritan wife, who completely disapproved of plays as a work of the Devil, attempts to take her husband's manuscripts from a man who would release them to the world. His response is the most moving line of the movie "one day, you, me, all the earls and Queen Elizabeth herself will be known only because we were alive when this man wrote these words." All the petty bickerings of a world full of noise fade away. Petty struggles and prominence are quickly forgotten. Only genius survives the test of time. As long as there are words, the Earl of Oxford, the true genius behind Shakespeare, will never be forgotten.
