Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, "Anonymous" speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain and Charles Dickens to Henry James and Sigmund Freud, namely: who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare? Experts have debated, books have been written, and scholars have devoted their lives to protecting or debunking theories surrounding the authorship of the most renowned works in English literature. "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 of the throne were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage. Directed by Roland Emmerich. Starring Vanessa Redgrave, Joely Richardson, Rhys Ifans, David Thewlis, Derek Jacobi. Rated PG-13 for some violence and sexual content/130m.
