Elizabeth: The Golden Age
ITV 11.25pm - 1.25am
Cate Blanchett is once again superb as Queen Elizabeth I in this fiery sequel to 1998’s film. It’s 1585, and Elizabeth is facing a dastardly plot orchestrated by Mary Queen of Scots (Samantha Morton) and an invasion from Spain. It’s a stylish film that has more romance than the first, with classy acting and a good climax as Clive Owen’s Walter Raleigh tackles the Spanish Armada.
