Two actors set out on a road trip to interview some of the biggest Oscar nominees and winners in a bid to conquer their fear of one of the greatest playwrights of all time.
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.
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
