Was Shakespeare a Fraud?
What would a real writer say?
Action director Emmerlich tries to make a crossover arthouse-cineplex drama, looking at the question of who exactly wrote the plays ascribed to Shakespeare. Since Will himself appears to have been an uneducated lower class nobody, scholars have scoured the royalty of the time looking for someone who may have been the real author. There are several candidates, and this film examines one of them, aiming to convince audiences of the truth of the theory.
