Elizabeth

Before the Golden Age, Elizabeth was a passionate and naive girl who came to reign over a land divided by bloody turmoil. Amid palace intrigue and attempted assassinations, the young queen is forced to become a cunning strategist while weighing the counsel of her mysterious advisors, thwarting her devious rivals, and denying her own desires for the good of her country. Cate Blanchett, Geoffrey Rush and Richard Attenborough lead a distinguished cast in this critically acclaimed epic of the queen's turbulent and treacherous rise to power. Followed by "Elizabeth: The Golden Age".
