This review is from: A Waste of Shame (DVD)Why did Shakespeare leave London when he was in his prime?
I always wondered if he had the pox. Apparently, I'm not the only one. Since we know so very little about the bard, any number of theories are worthy of speculation. History or lack of it aside, the film is great. I do believe that the great Rupert Graves can take any character, historical or fictional, and give that person a living, complicated, brilliant and unforgettable persona. The rest of the cast is also excellent. I will watch this film again for all the little bits that I may have missed at the first viewing. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to see great acting and an interesting interpretation of the mysterious life of Shakespeare.
