Cate Blanchett stars in this Oscar-nominated historical drama about the early years of England's "Virgin Queen," a Protestant who shakes up her country's Catholic hierarchy by ruling "from the heart instead of the mind." Palace intrigue, political assassinations, plots and murders are just a few of the traps Elizabeth must avoid in this absorbing, kinetically directed film from director Shekhar Kapur. Joseph Fiennes, Richard Attenborough, Christopher Eccleston, Fanny Ardant and Geoffrey Rush costar.
