Wonderful Film - Explores the Mystery of Who Wrote the Plays of Shakespeare
When WS died he left not one book, not even the bible. Strange for a man who should have had a mountain of books which he must have read to write his plays. Maybe one day the truth will out. Fine performances by everyone and a lovely script. A must see movie.

Might be more fun to read a book?
I'd been reading a couple of books about Shakespeare and this sounded like an interesting film....but.... The acting, particularly Rhys Ifans, is good but I found it hard to follow the plot as it leapt about in time in the Earl of Oxford's life, whilst some characters aged and some didn't. I still find the idea of Shakespeare's identity interesting but I'm not sure I'd recommend this film to anyone also interested.
good entertainment and refreshing
In all fairness if you are not into a bit of history then this film is not for you. From an historical point of view it raises some big questions, especially about a man (will) who we know very little about. He was a product of his age and maybe his greatest work was to fool the world!!! I liked the movie and found it interesting and it was very well done with some great cgi effects.
