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?
