Impressive Portrait Of Queen Elizabeth I
on June 11, 2017
A superb, intelligent, and intimate portrait of the golden age of the Virgin Queen, with the magnificent Helen Mirren as the embodiment of Elizabeth I (one of her greatest roles, in my opinion). Very reminiscent of the BBC mini-series, Elizabeth R., as it more historically accurate than any of the other Elizabeth I films and has no problem showing the complexities and intrigue of her court. It also has no problem showing the extremely gruesome details of the more tragic nature of her otherwise glorious reign.The fantastic production is full of beautiful sets, costumes, and music, witty brilliant writing and great cast that make the historical characters come alive because they are so well cast. Extras include a few "making of" and history documentaries. A must see for fans of historical or costume dramas.
