STUDIO: Universal Pictures/
Theatrical RELEASE DATE: 10-12-2007
ELIZABETH: THE GOLDEN AGE is the second ina trilogy. It deals with Queen Elizabeth (Cate Blanchett) in her early 50s. She
is still a virgin Queen as the Catholics plot against her still and she puts off getting married to anyone. She becomes enamored
with Sir Walter Raleigh (Clive Owen). Also Mary, Queen of Scots is in her castle prison as she plots to get rid of Elizabeth.
Blanchett shows the range of emotions as the chaarcter while Owen stands his ground as Raleigh. The naval battle against
the Spanish Armada is the high point of this film. Some may say this sequel isn't as good as the first one (which I haven't
seen), but it is a good look at history. ELIZABETH: THE GOLDEN AGE (like any good historical drama) should inspire people
to learn more about that time in history).
