Elizabeth: The Golden Age

2007

Shekar Kapur
Director

Sumptuous costume drama focusing on the odd romantic triangle between Sir Walter Raleigh, Queen Elizabeth I and the Queen's lady-in-waiting, Bess Throckmorton. But don't be put off there's the military might of Spain who are feeling particularly anti-Protestant. Blanchett is superb when she's shouty. Highly recommended.
