SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE

In the glory days of the Elisabeth theatre, two plawrights were fighting it out for audiences. That was the story tat wxplains the film. The time of that fil, was in 1998, it was a Britis-American romantic comedy-drama film. 

The century of the film was the 16th, in this century; it was five different queens, te different wives of Henry VIII, but the first was the mother of Henry VIII, the wife of Henry VII, Elisabeth of York.
In this time, apart from Shakespeare, tere are more writers, like Christopher Marlowe, Thomas Kyd and Ben Jonson. 

The plot of that story was that William Shakespeare was a poet, an actor and a playwright wose now hasn't got ideas for write. He is looking for a muse who will inspire him; all the intens fail, until he met Viola.
