Anonymous: Watch 'real' Shakespeare hand over Romeo & Juliet
Anonymous, the new big-budget historical movie from 2012 director Roland Emmerich, contends that the writer we all know as 'Shakespeare' was in fact an aristocrat called Edward De Vere. This new clip illustrates nicely how, in the world of the film, De Vere (Rhys Ifans) anonymously channels his work through Shakespeare, an actor, via Ben Johnson (Sebastian Armesto).
No doubt, there will be those with strong opinions on Shakespeare's texts that will take offence at the long-debated contention that Shakespeare wasn't Shakespeare. But still, surely we have to give Emmerich's movie the benefit of the doubt and allow the harmless theory the movie puts forward. Anonymous will be judged, not on it's contentious subject matter but how convincingly its story is told.
Anonymous is released on 28 October.
