Woman. Warrior. Queen. That's Queen Elizabeth.
Reprising the roles they played in Elizabeth, Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett and Geoffrey Rush return for a gripping historical thriller laced with treachery and romance. Clive Owen plays Sir Walter Raleigh, a dashing seafarer and newfound temptation for Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: The Golden Age finds Queen Elizabeth I facing bloodlust for her throne and familial betrayal. Growing keenly aware of the changing religious and political tides of late 16th century Europe, Elizabeth finds her rule openly challenged by the Spanish King Philip II (Jordi Molla) – with his powerful army and sea–dominating armada – determined to restore England to Catholicism.
Read so much about this supposedly great, terrific film. I am not impressed.
