[cert 12, 123 mins]

Will Shakespeare’s life is going badly; his love life is a
shambles, he is short of money and he has writer’s
block however, then he meets the aristocratic Viola de
Lesseps; it is love at first sight and their clandestine,
taboo-breaking affair inspires him to write one of the
greatest love stories ever told: Romeo and Juliet.
