The utterly hilarious Bill – from the performers behind children’s TV series Horrible Histories – is a rambunctious, irreverent take on the young William Shakespeare’s quest for fame and fortune. The re-imagined Shakespeare (Mathew Baynton) is a hapless lute-player who, following his dreams, becomes involved in the fortunes of kings, spies and a plot to blow up the Queen. Mixing historical accuracy, inaccuracy and contemporary humour to great effect, there are also excellent supporting turns from Damian Lewis, Rufus Jones and a brilliant Helen McCrory in a laugh-out-loud film that will entertain children and adults alike.
“A crowd-pleasing treat” **** Mark Kermode, Observer
