I just finished watching Elizabeth: The Virgin Queen (BBC). I really enjoyed this interpretation of Queen Elizabeth's reign. If I ever was in the business of movie-making, and happened to make a movie about Queen Elizabeth (both of which are two unfathomable if's) then this is exactly how I would have made it. Ann-Marie Duff, the actress who plays Elizabeth, surprisingly lacks what is known as contemporary beauty. But, I think it lends a great authenticity to the film, especially as no Hollywood retouching has been incorporated, and many of the actors have (or at least are shown as having) horrid teeth. Never have I seen a movie that gave me such inspiration for the Renaissance Festival.
