I thought the movie was wonderful! I cant get enough. I will purchase the movie when it goes on sale. Everyone was excellent in this movie!I think this is the best piece of work Helen mirren has ever done. Jeremy Irons is perfect for his role. Hugh Dancy Did great as the Earl of essex. As I was getting ready to watch the movie I was bouncing off the walls ,as I am a huge admirer of Good Queen Bess. As many movies as I have seen, I still learned from this one. I think it was nice to see, that hough she was powerful she still craved the love that we all crave .Sadly it was really never obtained. I hope everyone will watch this movie .
