Muse of Fire: A Shakespearean Road Movie

Ten Oscar nominees, five Oscar winners, one dame, seven knights and two friends will change the way you feel about Shakespeare forever. This documentary follows actors Giles Terera and Dan Poole around the world as they try to conquer their fear of Shakespeare. In a clapped-out car, with spiralling debts and a single-minded determination to meet some of the world's biggest stars, their chaotic journey takes them from Elsinore in Denmark to London's Globe Theatre to Hollywood.

Starring Judi Dench, Jude Law, Ewan McGregor, Steven Berkoff, Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi, Alan Rickman, James Earl Jones, Mark Rylance, Dominic West and Baz Luhrmann, Muse of Fire is a smart, subversive, idiosyncratic road movie in search of the enduring power of one of the greatest playwrights of all time.
