Taking Shakespeare

Who appreciates Shakespeare anymore? Murph sure doesn’t, and seeks out an older Shakespeare scholar, to bring the Bard’s words to life. This enchanting, eccentric journey creates a beautiful dichotomy between Shakespeare’s verse and today’s language. Is it possible for this avid video-game lover to love Shakespeare?
