Think Shakespeare is boring? Think again!

An amazing documentary made by two extremely passionate actor/filmmakers. You can't help but get taken along for the ride thanks to the enthusiasm of Dan and Giles. This is part road movie, part buddy movie, part passion project and one that has helped me to view Shakespeare's work in a new and enlightening way.
