At the height of his renown as England’s greatest playwright, William Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre burns down during a performance of one of his plays. Motivated by this tragedy, and by that of his only son’s death, Shakespeare begins to take stock of his family relationships and his life, returning home to face the mistakes he has made as a husband and a father. He does intense battle with personal secrets and haunting memories in his final days as he attempts to mend his ties with his wife and daughters.

Hustlers (107 min., R)

This is about a woman who “just wants to take care of (her) grandma” and “maybe go shopping once in a while.” She decides the best way to make that happen is to start stripping and begins working at a strip club where her fellow strippers become her extended family. Inspired by a New York Magazine article, it’s not only about strippers who are trying to make a living. They are trying to even the score. In classic “Robin Hood” fashion, the strippers concoct a scheme to steal from crooked, wealthy Wall Street bankers for their own gain. What transpires next is a whirlwind of crazy highs and unfortunate lows.
