This gripping biographical drama will wipe out memories of dull history lessons, with a spectacular performance from star Cate Blanchett at its heart. Bringing 16th-century England vividly to life, it explores the difficulties facing young Protestant Elizabeth I when she takes the throne after her Catholic half-sister, Queen Mary, dies. Elizabeth is still only a girl, with no idea of how to rule a country - and it doesn't help that even some of her close advisors are secretly plotting to restore the Catholic line. But her biggest headache is the insistence that she should marry and produce an heir - particularly as her own lover is considered unsuitable.
An unusual portrayal of Queen Victoria, seen in her days as the beautiful, spirited young princess who was romanced by Prince Albert.
