Period and Historical
Bette Davis plays Queen Elizabeth I in this swashbuckling tale of court intrigue and romance. The ageing queen is deeply attracted to seafaring adventurer Sir Walter Raleigh, who woos her to secure the ships he needs for his next expedition, while secretly two-timing the queen with scheming young courtier Beth Throgmorton. This is a lavish and authentic period adaptation, but one with plenty of fast-paced swordplay to balance out the extravagant gowns.
This gripping biographical drama will wipe out memories of dull history lessons, with a spectacular performance from star Cate Blanchett at its heart.
