Can't get enough of movies? Then head over to Mumsnet Films!
Is anyone watching Elizabeth on More4 - or has anyone seen it?en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_%28film%29Fascinating, wonder how realistic it is? I mean how accurate??Thanks any historians reading this!
I saw it when it first came out together with my a level history group. Cant remember the ins and outs but we werent impressed. The cross dressing frenchman - there were two brothers, but the film got the wrong one.
Oh thanks, wondered if the cross dressing was real. And the poisoned dress??Thanks redexpat.
Dont remember a poisoned dress!
Not historically accurate at all, esp timelines - but an entertaining film to watch.There were many Catholic plots to kill Elizabeth, and a poisoned dress was one of them.
Found these elizabethi.org/us/faq/two.htmqueryblog.tudorhistory.org/2006/02/question-from-silvia-poisoned-dress.html
