Short description


Action Drama

Who was Shakespeare? In Roland Emmerich's opulent conspiracy thriller, the answer is Edward de Vere, the Duke of Oxford (Rhys Ifans). Because of his aristocratic status and a quarrel with Queen Elisabeth I (Vanessa Redgrave), with whom he had a relationship in his youth, he can't publish his plays. So he looks for a front man and finds him in the actor William Shakespeare (Rafe Spall). As the aging queen is increasingly pestered by her scheming counselors on the issue of an heir, Edward de Vere decides to use the success of his dramas to influence politics.
