Waste of Shame DVD Description
Inspired by William Shakespeare's collection of 154 sonnets, A WASTE OF SHAME attempts to solve a mystery 400 years in the making by speculating on the identities of the Fair Youth (Tom Sturridge) and Dark Lady (Indira Varma) who played such a prominent role in the Bard's most popular works. As Shakespeare (Rupert Graves) approaches mid-life, he finds himself drawn into a treacherous love triangle. The depravity in 16th Century England at an all time high and the plague playing on everyone's fear of death, dejected poet Shakespeare filters his ennui into some of the most scathing, bitter sonnets ever written.
