Who wrote Shakespeare?

What is the greatest question in the world? No it's not that but who wrote the plays of William Shakespeare. Now Sony will be releasing a film that will answer that question. With a great British cast that includes Rhys Ifans, Vanesa Redgrave, Joely Richardson and directed by Roland Emmerich. So what's there not to like about the film?

There is a, US, domestic trailer out there but it will be a while before the UK version is released.

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.
