|A royal dispute
Two reviewers, too strong and different opinions
Reviewed by Carlos deVillalvilla
The following review is sung to the tune of "The Girl From Impanema"
Long and boring and slow and pond'rous
She's headstrong and brave and loyal
Cate (as in Blanchett) is marvelous,
Instead of crafty Liz comes off as brassy,
This is an excellent film, with lots to think about and an absolutely stunning performance by Cate Blanchett.
Elizabeth was a fabulous queen, and this movie tells the story of how she went from being a promising young woman to one of the greatest leaders in the history of the planet.
Geoffrey Rush, as always, is great to watch.
This film requires a certain amount of concentration, and it doesn't hurt to have a smattering of English history in your brain. Well worth some watching time.
