Anonymous Synopsis
Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain and Charles Dickens to Henry James and Sigmund Freud, namely: who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare? Experts have debated, books have been written, and scholars have devoted their lives to protecting or debunking theories surrounding the authorship of the most renowned works in English literature. Anonymous poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when cloak-and-dagger political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles hungry for the power of the throne were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage.

For the past few days the big story has been the protest of SOPA and PIPA, the two potentially disastrous and dangerous pieces of legislation that would give major corporations and organizations the right to censor the internet in the name of protection against piracy. Yesterday, websites like Wikipedia.org and Reddit.com shut their doors to the public, demonstrating what it would be like if either SOPA or PIPA were passed...

Joely Richardson Dons Queen Elizabeth's Many Wigs In Anonymous Joely Richardson Dons Queen Elizabeth's Many Wigs In Anonymous
I talked to Richardson about her role in the film, working hard to let her naturally similarities to her mother link the character, playing one of the most iconic figures of British history, and what she thinks of the "Oxfordian" theory behind the film, that de Vere was in fact that author of Shakespeare's works...

Rhys Ifans Says Roland Emmerich Was Brave To Cast Him As The Real Shakespeare Rhys Ifans Says Roland Emmerich Was Brave To Cast Him As The Real Shakespeare
Rhys Ifans admits up front that he didn't expect to get the role of Edward de Vere in Anonymous. He's the gangly, goofy guy who played Spike in Notting Hill and Xenophilius Lovegood in Harry Potter; why would anyone bring him in as the noblemen who, at least in the theoretical world Anonymous presents, secretly wrote all of Shakespeare's plays?...

Rhys Ifans Talks Wearing A Green CGI Suit And Cardboard Head On The Amazing Spider-Man Set Rhys Ifans Talks Wearing A Green CGI Suit And Cardboard Head On The Amazing Spider-Man Set
I love the mental image of Ifans on the set of this $200 million production, wearing cardboard on his head and a skintight green suit. Of course that's not what we'll see on the screen, but when the astonishing CGI Lizard arrives onscreen in The Amazing Spider-Man next summer, I hope the silly side of it pops into your head just a little....
