And as a consequence of this, it's not difficult to get involved in the typical atmosphere of the sixteenth century, also thanks to the beautiful costumes designed by Phillips herself, who also worked on the music, hairstyles, make-up, and artistic direction.
The documentary is full of information, anecdotes, details, and spins around two centuries, between literature, history, and art. Despite being so full of news and quotes, you can easily follow it from start to finish. Not only without ever getting bored but remaining with bated breath in search of yet another proof that helps to agree with an increasingly numerous group of people that supports this extraordinarily beautiful and thrilling theory. It's difficult, after having seen it, not to want to join the chorus of voices of these artists, historians, writers, who claim that a glove maker could not have created what are among the greatest masterpieces of world theater literature. And that it's much more likely that it was the seventeenth Earl of Oxford, Edward de Ver, lover (to be reductive) of Queen Elizabeth, and an erudite and brilliant man of letters.
Art Harman enriches the movie with his cinematography and his technical effects, which join the narrative moments in a fluid and coherent way.To quote Anna Rice, even within the documentary itself there are "very very interesting stuff", which could not tell this crazy part of history in a better way.I challenge the public not to fall in love with this story, with their protagonists, and with Robin Phillips in this delightful documentary film, which teaches and entertains, thus remaining faithful to the primary purpose of Elizabethan theater.
