My wife and I watched this movie today. It is the story of the conflict between two royal cousins in the turbulent times of the late 16th Century. Both actresses played their roles well. Elizabeth showed the effect of white lead poisoning on her face; while this made her skin white, it caused damage. The minor dramatic license was in having them meet; in real life they never did. John Knox, the protestant reformer (and bigot) was played very well. Fotheringhay Castle is now only a mound(the keep) on the banks of the sleepy Nene River.
Elizabeth became one of the greatest of all British monarchs. She made that famous speech on the docks at Tilbury before the defeat of the Spanish Armada.
I recommend this movie, particularly for history students as it is very accurate, particularly with respect to weapons. (I do Renaissance longsword).
I have a facsimile of Mary's last speech before her execution. I am happy to lend this.
