Made over 30 years ago this film is dated by today's production standards. A young Tim Curry and Ian McShain star in this fictional account of Shakespeare's life. There is of course controversy over who exactly Shakespeare was and this account adds little to enlighten us on that mystery. The DVD jacket calls the production at times cheeky, but campy would be a better description. It's believable that the bard himself would be bored by this BBC production.
