Movie Trailer: Anonymous (2011)

Apparently in some circles (you know, the ones inhabited by “academics and brilliant minds”) there is a raging debate whether the 37 plays and 154 sonnets attributed to William Shakespeare were really written by William Shakespeare. Sounds dry, I know, but I suppose if anyone can make, what on the surface seems uninteresting interesting, Roland Emmerich can. Taking place in what appears to be a masterfully scaped Elizabethan England, his latest movie, Anonymous, poses a possible answer through political backstabbing, illicit romances in the Royal Court and greed.

Anonymous stars Rhys Ifans, Vanessa Redgrave, David Thewlis, Joely Richardson, Xavier Samuel and Jamie Campbell Bower.

    I think that this will be a great film. I love the idea that it is exploring, that the Earl of Oxford actually wrote the famous works. There is some history to back it up as well, J. T. Looney in the 1930s argued, out of a belief that ‘The Merchant of Venice’ must have been written by a man who knew Italy and Italian life at first hand, which meant that it could not have been an actor from Stratford.

    If you’re going to debate about who actually wrote the shakespeare works, I would go with Francis Bacon. Too me, it seems the most accurate. Bacon was a lawyer, and it has been said that the true author knew a lot about the Law. Even though Bacon did not enjoy his work in the Law, perhaps writing plays and poems provided an artistic outlet that he wanted.
