About the Movie
Funny, passionate and exciting: Muse of Fire will change the way you feel about Shakespeare forever. This unique feature documentary follows two actors, Giles Terera and Dan Poole, as they travel the world to find out everything they can about tackling the greatest writer of them all. Together they have directed and produced an inspiring film that aims to demystify and illuminate Shakespeare’s work for everyone: from actors, directors, theatre goers, students, to the man on the street. Their adventures take them to Denmark with Jude Law, Hollywood with Baz Luhrmann, Prison in Berlin, Shakespeare's house in Stratford Upon Avon and Judi Dench's back garden. Think Shakespeare is boring? Think again! Featuring: Dame Judi Dench, Ewan McGregor, Sir Ian McKellen, Jude Law, Tom Hiddleston, Sir Derek Jacobi, Julie Taymor, Dominic West, Fiona Shaw, Alan Rickman, Baz Luhrmann, Zoe Wanamaker, Jeremy Irons, James Earl Jones, Christopher Eccleston, Simon Russell Beale, Sir Nick Hytner, Peter Hall, Melvyn Bragg, Toby Stephens, Frances Barber, Rory Kinnear, Dominic Dromgoole, Sandy Foster and many more.
An Amazing Journey for Shakespeare
A wonderful tale documenting two friends' exploration of Shakespeare in modern culture. Riddled with humor, the film balances the quirks and twists of Giles' and Dan's daily travels with the moments of magic and beauty they encountered during their interviews with famous actors and passionate Shakespeare lovers. Capturing the expert and the everyday individual's relationship, (or lack thereof), with the Bard, they leave no stone unturned in their persistent, ocean-crossing search, and the boldness of their journey, paired with their willing grasp of unexpected opportunities, is truly inspiring! I heartily recommend this film. Whether you're a lover of Shakespeare or simply someone who's spent their life wondering what the fuss is about, you can't help but be drawn in.
LOVED this. I"ll probably watch it again this weekend!
Engaging, Entertaining Trip Through Shakespeare's World
Muse of Fire is both a fun and important contribution. Through the adventures of filmmakers Dan Poole & Giles Terera and their interviews with seasoned Shakespeareans viewers learn how to catch the muse.
Recommended for those experienced with The Bard as well as newcomers. I also think it would be useful in the classroom with students who think Shakespeare might be too hard or boring.
