Whoever wrote Shakespeare's plays is Shakespeare by definition. But more to the point--this movie is entertainment. Was Richard III truly a humpbacked murderer of children? Was the wife of the real Macbeth a scheming murderess? Was Henry VIII as wise and as good a king as Shakespeare makes him out to be?
Shakespeare took liberties with personalities of real, historical people in order to entertain his audience. Why shouldn't the makers of this movie be able to do the same?
