Will Shakespeare has writer’s block. Low on funds and out of ideas, the young playwright finds his muse in Viola de Lesseps, a beautiful, intelligent noblewoman with dreams of the stage. Will and Viola begin a passionate affair that becomes inspiration for Shakespeare’s next play, Romeo and Juliet.
Recommended for ages 13+ due to mild sexual situations and some profanity.
