Directed by Miles Potter
It is 1616 in Stratford-on-Avon, and William Shakespeare's widow has just returned home from burying her husband. As she studies the unopened sheaf of paper in her hand, Anne Hathaway reflects on 34 years of marriage to a man she rarely saw. For while she had remained in Stratford to raise their three children on her own, her ambitious husband had long ago followed his dreams to London. Now he is gone, and Anne sits alone with her memories. Her husband's last wishes lay in her hand. So why is Anne reluctant to uncover them?
Inspired by the actual contents of William Shakespeare's last will and testament, Shakespeare's Will is a powerful depiction of love public and hidden, loyalty tested and betrayed. Above all, it is the story of one remarkable woman and her determination to remain faithful to herself.
