Movie Preview - Anonymous

We all have heard the rumor that Shakespeare did not write all/some of his plays. The to-be-released-this-fall film, Anonymous, explores this idea more fully. The primary focus of the film is who wrote these plays but it is also described as a political thriller set in the Elizabethan Era around the Essex Rebellion. For those of you who are interested in Shakespeare and this time period, this movie looks interesting. The trailer is below – it certainly looks dramatic!

In the USA, UK, and Canada it is scheduled to be released September 30, 2011. You can check out the release dates by country here.

Joely Richardson will play a young Elizabeth Tudor while Vanessa Redgrave will play Queen Elizabeth. I don’t recognize any of the other actors in this film.

Do you think you will see this one?

  1. Oh, yes, I will see this movie! I find its topic extremely fascinating.

  2. I can't wait to see it, definitely yes.

  3. Oh yes, I do want to see this.

  4. I saw a poster for this at my local theatre when I went to see Pirates and when I came home I had to look it up. I now can't wait until it comes out.

  5. I will definitely see this one. Shakespeare has always been one of my greatest interests. We hear these rumors about him and can't help but wonder if they are true.

    Did you know that Joely Richardson is Vanessa Redgrave's daughter and sister of the late Natasha Richardson?

  6. Thanks for this post. Anonymous definitely looks like my kind of movie.

  7. I haven't heard anything about this but I love the look/sound of it!! I can't wait!

  8. All - this does look like an very interesting movie.

    Michelle - I knew she was Natasha Richardson's sister, but I didn't know Vanessa Redgrave was her mother.

  9. Period piece...absolutley!
    Thanks for the heads up.
