We saw Anonymous, that movie where Shakespeare didn't write the works of Shakespeare. I don't buy the premise as history, but as a sort of alternate-history story I enjoyed it a lot. Well acted by a bunch of Brits, nice recreation of Elizabethan London, etc. I admit my eyes rolled more than a few times at distortions of literary history, including some of the discussion of iambic pentameter. But I suspect most people won't be bothered by what bothered me!

Anyway, whoever he really was...

He had a gift
for words that lift
hearts like kites
to airy heights.
