Drama, Thriller 2h 10m 2011

Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, ANONYMOUS speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds… Who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare?

ANONYMOUS poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when cloak-and-dagger political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles hungry for the power were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage.

AroView: A surprisingly enjoyable and intriguing romp that posits that the true writer of Shakespeare’s plays was in fact the Earl of Oxford (given the lack of hard evidence of Shakespeare’s education and legacy). Some of Britain’s finest thesps - including former Globe director Mark Rylance - act up a storm, and it may be disaster-master Roland Emmerich’s most accomplished works.

“Anonymous is a vulgar prank on the English literary tradition, a travesty of British history and a brutal insult to the human imagination. Apart from that, it’s not bad.” ~A.O Scott, NEW YORK TIMES
