Elizabeth: The Golden Age

I found this one a fun film to see … though it’s been getting terrible reviews and I suppose if you actually knew the history which this is supposed to be telling you’d be upset with the “cinematic licence” taken with the fact. I thoroughly enjoyed it from the worst seat in the house … over to the side and partly obstructed.

I suppose I should admit that I’m a fan of both Cate Blanchett and Clive Owen and could watch either of them read the phone book and be satisfied.
