Did Shakespeare write his plays?

Roland Emmerich, the director, has sat down and told us why he thinks Shakespeare didn't write the plays accredited to him. Not only that. Sony has sent over a load of clips for you to watch as well. They have sent a new set of images to keep you amused.

Roland Emmerich – Why Shakespeare did not write the plays
CLIPS
How many people were at that play?
I’m perfect for the role
Hamlet
My gift is a play
You have no voice
Love scene
All art is political
You know he’s illiterate
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.
