The Western Star - - LIFE | TV GUIDE -

Satur­day, sbs, 7.30pm, M (2007)

A decade af­ter di­rec­tor Shekhar Ka­pur’s El­iz­a­beth, the ever-reli­able Cate Blanchett reigns supreme once again as the ma­jes­tic monarch in this se­quel. This in­stal­ment is set against the back­drop of Eng­land’s mpend­ing in­va­sion by the Span­ish Ar­mada, and finds the so-called Vir­gin Queen long­ing for love. A yearn­ing for in­ti­macy sees lonely El­iz­a­beth take an in­ter­est in Wil­liam Raleigh (Clive Owen). But when Raleigh’s eye turns to her pretty lady-in-wait­ing Bess (Ab­bie Cor­nish), El­iz­a­beth’s petu­lance comes to the fore. An epic ac­count of El­iz­a­beth’s finest hour.
