All’s Faire in Love

Director: Scott Marshall
Actors: Christina Ricci, Owen Benjamin, Ann-Margret

Plot: Set in the world of a Renaissance Faire, All’s Faire in Love is a light-hearted romp, a romantic camp comedy, falling somewhere between Shakespeare In Love and Meatballs. After years of performing together, a rag-tag theatre troupe is about to lose its prime gig at Ye Olde Times Renaissance Faire when the Faire’s owner threatens to hand over their stage to a rival troupe of conceited, classically trained Shakespearean actors. The gonzo group must revive their act and find help from an unexpected source – their two new backstage hands, a young actor and actress who must overcome all manner of subterfuge and opposition to prove their worth, win the day, and – perhaps – fall in love.

And They’re Off

Actors: Sean Astin, Kevin Nealon, Greg Cipes

I hate this movie already because it’s forcing me to write filler to get the next image to alight right.

Anonymous

Actors: Xavier Samuel, Rhys Ifans, Jamie Campbell Bower

Plot: Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain and Charles Dickens to Henry James and Sigmund Freud, namely: who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare?
