|Was Shakespeare a Fraud?
Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds... who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare? 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 were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage.

"Tremendously entertaining.  Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"well-paced and never threatens to bore or become too scholarly.  James Berardinelli's ReelViews
"...takes the viewer on a breathtaking ride through ye olde London.  Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter

Editor's Note
Director Roland Emmerich takes a break from his long string of big-budget disaster films with ANONYMOUS, a historical drama that suggests Shakespeare was a fraud. Edward de Vere (Rhys Ifans) is an aristocrat who yearns to write poetry and plays, but due to social and political constraints, he is forced to use a front for his political-minded works because they subtly encourage Queen Elizabeth to alter her plan for succession in a way that is in direct opposition to her most-trusted political advisers. When drunken, illiterate, fame-hungry actor William Shakespeare (Rafe Spall) passes off the plays as his own, de Vere finds his man, but eventually he is blackmailed when the morally dubious thespian wants more and more. ANONYMOUS screened at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.

Professional Reviews

Box Office
4 stars out of 5 -- "What works in ANONYMOUS is that Emmerich's first focus is the plot. Fleet and fascinating, he convinces the audience that this centuries-old half-true melodrama demands attention." 09/16/2011

Los Angeles Times
"There are palace intrigues, beddings and beheadings, and lots of well-staged theater. Rhys Ifans turns out to be the best surprise of all..." 10/28/2011

Movieline
"[W]ith some clever casting and a few very fine performances at its core." 10/27/2011

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
Because of the ingenious screenplay by John Orloff, precise direction by Roland Emmerich and the casting of memorable British actors, you can walk into the theater as a blank slate, follow and enjoy the story, and leave convinced - if of nothing else - that Shakespeare was a figure of compelling interest. - Roger Ebert
