Good choice from the makers of this movie to focus on this stage of Queen Elizabeth as a preparation stage for her to be the real Establesher and founder of United Kingdom during the battle of Armada against Spanish and Portugesse navy that tried to occupied UK but the solidarity brought up of Young Bess learned here to face the hard destiny and fate to cross with her nation on this hard future but the Battle of Armada was a turning point for British nation to put their country on the Glob.
Great Movie and great acting from Simons , Deborah Kerr , Stewart Granger that usually entertained us in front of Epic story and Simplified the hard information and historical expressions in the scene to help the next generations to know their heritage as a point of safety from erase and decline under the wings of globalization.
