Anonymous... To Write or Not to Write!

Who is responsible for the works of William Shakespeare? Did he write all those sonnets, plays, masterpieces? Some would say Shakespeare was a genius, some would say others should be credited for the brilliant writings.

A political thriller about who actually wrote the plays of William Shakespeare-- Edward De Vere, Earl of Oxford-- set against the backdrop of the succession of Queen Elizabeth I, and the Essex Rebellion against her. IMDB

Vanessa Redgrave is set to star as Queen Elizabeth I. Me likes Vanessa a lot, so I can't wait to see her as the Queen! Also starring Redgrave's daughter Joely Richardson and Rhys Ifans. Vanessa is the real star here in my opinion, but can't wait to see it all come together. When it comes to period pieces, I don't need big names... in fact, big names can take away from the whole experience (i.e. Brad Pitt in Troy).

Check out this press conference where the stars discuss their roles within the flick. It's a little dry, but interesting nonetheless! Check it out!
