I was looking forward to seeing this movie. I wouldn't have been aware of the movie if I didn't receive Tribute magazine. I was intrigued by the story and huge fan of many actors in the film. I would love to see it on the small screen too. Would highly recommend!

This was a very pleasant surprise - worth it.
Very interesting subject matter
An excellent movie- a must see.
Intriguing premise, but rather unevenly executed. Worth seeing on DVD, not big screen worthy imo.
My all time favorite movies are historical so of course I enjoyed it.
A great look at a new mystery and great scenery. Well done!
interesting subject matter
Love these historical movies!
A must see great movie
An excellent movie with a very interesting premise.
Enjoyable movie. Good story (and well-acted). It's too bad it's sort of flown under the radar this final 1/4 of 2011 given all the bigger-name pictures that are always being released on the ol' big screen.
Interesting concept - acting was decent, movie overall was enjoyable. Don't know if this was something I'd go out of my way to see again, but definitely enjoyed it while watching it
Good treatment of a controversial subject. Casting was superb and it was fun to see how each play evolved.
At times the plot became a little confusing but if you are a fan of Shakespeare and the mystery behind whether or not he actually wrote his plays then go see this movie!! The Elizabethan England set and costume designs were depicted perfectly and they were amazing! David Thewlis did a brilliant job of playing William Cecil as did Rhys Ifans! Overall, amazing movie!
