Goofs

Although Elizabeth is portrayed as travelling incognito to meet Mary Stuart (Queen of Scots), the two famously never met. They did communicate by letter and Elizabeth often expressed her wish to meet Mary but she always insisted that would only happen once Mary had acknowledged Elizabeth's right to the throne of England.

The Humanity Of The Icon
3 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

I'm so brainwashed about Elizabeth I, Bette Davis, Judi Dench, Glenda Jackson, Flora Robson that it was startling at first to get to know the woman behind the icon. Helen Mirren is beyond superb, she is a miracle worker. Meryl Streep called her "an acting God" and she wasn't kidding. I'm not going to go into the story, we all know it, more or less, but I can assure you we've never seen it quite like this. Her imposing presence doesn't cancel her humanity, her rages, her pain, her longing her capacity for love and compassion with the fierce awareness that she is the queen and not just any old queen but Elizabeth I Queen of England. A total absorbing delight from beginning to end. Long Live Helen Mirren!
