Aro Recommended Elizabeth


UK 1998, 124 minutes
Dir. Shekhar Kapur
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Girl-centric

Topics: Period - 1500s.


Aroview: Attended by much ballyhoo, Australian actress Cate Blanchett fruitfully represents England's famous Queen as a key player in the sex tragi-comedy of 16th century Europe, as half of Europe looks to marry her (or marry her off) for strategic advantage.

Deeper historical aspects are kept to a mininum (and never really resolved), dir. Kapur (BANDIT QUEEN) instead sketching a colourful visual poem out of scenes of bed-chamber, court and dungeon politics.
