Movie of the Week #121 – Elizabeth


Well since it’s the merry old Queen’s Elizabeth II Jubilee this week, last week, whenever, I don’t know I’m not British and I don’t care… and since the British people think that England has suffered under her rule. Let’s do a movie of when England was great and the Empire span the globe… Elizabeth I

This film details the ascension to the throne and the early reign of Queen Elizabeth the First, as played by Cate Blanchett. The main focus is the endless attempts by her council to marry her off, the Catholic hatred of her and her romance with Lord Robert Dudley.

    Elizabeth was the earliest example of cutting taxes and spending in order for the country to survive.  It took 10 years to get the country back to were it was before.
