Elizabeth: The Golden Age
In a BAFTA-nominated performance, Cate Blanchett returns as Elizabeth I in a sequel that chronicles her late reign. With sumptuous costumes and vast sets, this biopic won’t fail to entertain with its rapid momentum and many tonal shifts. Produced by the UK’s StudioCanal and Working Title Films, it boasts a dazzling array of UK acting talent.
Queen Elizabeth I (Cate Blanchett) sees her kingdom threatened by two Catholics, Philip II of Spain (Jordi Molla) and Mary Queen of Scots (Samantha Morton). Sworn to her country, Elizabeth must resist her attraction to the charismatic Sir Walter Raleigh (Clive Owen), with jealousy mounting as he and her handmaiden (Abbie Cornish) grow closer.
