Shakespeare’s Still Trending

Nearly 450 years later, he’s still the talk of the town!

I’m looking forward to seeing it.  The reviews are pouring in, and the film seems to be stirring up some controversy.  The consensus among many Shakespearean scholars is that these theories are nothing but unproved rumors, but they persist nonetheless.

Will you be taking in Anonymous?
