The theory that it was in fact Edward De Vere, Earl of Oxford, who penned Shakespeare's plays. Set against the backdrop of the succession of Queen Elizabeth I and the Essex rebellion against her.
Joely Richardson, who played the young Queen Elizabeth I, had previously played Catherine Parr, the stepmother of Elizabeth I, in The Tudors (2007).
You are the soul of the age... Undeniable perfection that plagued my soul.
The play presented on the eve of the Essex Rebellion was William Shakespeare's "Richard II", not (as portrayed in this film) "Richard III".
Apart from the production companies, the only opening credit is the movie's title, displayed on the marquee of the prologue's theater.
