24 of 27 people found the following review helpful By L. Power HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Dec 9 2011
I always accepted the idea that Shakespeare wrote his own plays, and considered anything to the contrary to be merely speculation not fact. So, the premise-what if Shakespeare never wrote a word, I found not to be appealing.

Upon reading some good reviews, I decided to see it, and found it to be a high quality production and a wonderful experience. Director Roland Emmerich previously directed 2012, and Independence Day, and writer John Orloff previously wrote some episodes of Band of Brothers, and as you watch this movie you will realise this term BoB originated with Shakespeare.

Anonymous proposes the Earl of Oxford wrote all the plays, anonymously donated them to Ben Johnson, a well known writer of the time for him to take credit. Then an uncouth illiterate actor, named Shakespeare steps in to claim the credit. The peer remained anonymous for reasons of social acceptability.

Another reason he may have remained anonymous which I totally loved was the parallel structure between what happened in the plays, and the real life events of the courtiers and Queen Elizabeth. Cecil, the courtier villain in this movie is a hunchback (historical fact), and brother in law of the Earl of Oxford. Richard 3 in Shakespeare's play is a hunchback, so the play becomes a social satire.

A scene where a man is stabbed through a curtain mirrors a scene in Hamlet. A usurped heir is sent to Ireland, and there is a plot to kill him, similar to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern in Hamlet.

Emmerich's direction gives Anonymous a much grander scope.

The movie itself was very, very good in my opinion. I am a big fan of Shakespeare and therefore I really wanted to give this movie a go and I'm very happy I did. The movie offers an interesting theory that Will was illiterate and a simple actor who took the credit for a number of plays written by a knobleman. I personally still believe that Shakespeare probably wrote his plays but I was obviously not there so I do not know, that is why I love this movie it offers an alternative idea and is in itself an excellent story telling the story not only of Will but of many other writes. It is also a very good laugh. Would recommend this movie to anyone who likes different views on the story of the famous writings.

This movie challenges what the scholars had made us to believe that Shakespeare was author of so many books. In fact, he was not author of those books, and was a noble man who could not disclose his name because it was a dishonor to his family name and blasphemy to be associated with theater.

As someone who believes that Shakespeare did write his own plays, I am rather puzzled by the outright hostility that ANONYMOUS is receiving in some quarters. Most (but not all) of the negative reviews are from people who cannot get past the central conceit that someone else may have written them. ANONYMOUS never claims to be historically accurate. In fact it is littered with several blatant historical inaccuracies (Shakespeare murdering Christopher Marlowe 5 years after the fact, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM written by a child of 10, Queen Elizabeth's funeral procession on a frozen river Thames, the Tudor Rose was an emblem not a flower) that make it quite clear that this is intended to be a work of historical fiction. So was SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE but no one got upset over that film at least not to the extent that they have here.

What we do have is a major "what if" scenario that works quite well as an Elizabethan costume drama with some seriously heavy overtones ("Delicious isn't it? Right out of a Greek tragedy" says Robert Cecil toward the end). Edward Hogg's portrayal of Robert Cecil is outstanding and David Thewlis as his father William is virtually unrecognizable. Kudos also to Sebastian Armesto as a conflicted Ben Jonson. In fact, I found all of the performances to be solid and above average and they kept me interested in the proceedings. The recreation of Elizabethan London is marvelous and shows that CGI can be used to great effect (like glass painting in old Hollywood movies) without resorting to blowing things up. I truly got the feeling that I was actually watching a performance at the Globe Theater especially when the rain began to fall.

I should point out that I saw this film in a movie theater on four occasions.
