I'm not going to weigh in...

...on the latest controversy surrounding the reburial of Richard III. (I'll leave that to the denizens of Leicester and York to decide; just don't start a new War of the Roses, please.)

But I do want to take this opportunity to recommend the 1995 movie, above, starring Ian McKellen. It's probably the only movie or play (or anything) by Shakespeare that I actually enjoyed. (Full disclosure: I don't speak Elizabethan English.) Check it out some time.
