A special Preview of the film "Anonymous", offered to teachers and students
of the University of Bologna


"Anonymous advocates and dramatizes the old Oxfordian variant of a theory, proposed 91 years ago, which questions Shakespeare's authorship of the plays and poems ascribed to him by history and scholarship,  and contends instead that the works of William Shakespeare were in fact written by an Elizabethan aristocrat, Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford. De Vere is depicted as a literary prodigy, the illegitimate child and lover of the Queen, on whom he sires his own brother and son, Henry Wriothesley, 3rd Earl of Southampton, to whom many believe the Sonnets of Shakespeare are dedicated. He eventually manages to get his suppressed plays performed through a frontman (Shakespeare) in order to support a rebellion led by his alleged half-brother Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex The insurrection fails, and to save his son by the queen, he must renounce his right to be known as the author of Shakespeare's works. Emmerich depicts the historic Shakespeare as a murderous, illiterate simpleton."  []
