Plot Summary
As royal troops set fire to the Globe Theatre, Elizabethan-era playwright Ben Jonson (Sebastian Armesto) is tortured by Robert Cecil (Edward Hogg), who demands to know if Edward de Vere, the Earl of Oxford (Rhys Ifans), is the true author of the writings attributed to William Shakespeare (Rafe Spall). Flashbacks reveal Oxford's passionate affair with Queen Elizabeth I and how -- in his younger days -- Oxford charmed her with plays like "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

    Fantastic movie. It\'s great to see an awesome movie, instead of the usual crap for the masses.

    Interesting, convincing story and terrific acting. That said, it was very difficult to keep up with the timeline and character\'s names. I wasn\'t comfortable in the movie until about 3/4 of the way into it.
