The trailer was definitely pieced together with me in mind. The visuals are gorgeous and it just hints at the juicy plot to assisinate Elizabeth and bring Mary Queen of Scots to the throne. No one survives a good fight with the Tudors with their head and who doesn’t love a glorious state execution?
“Well, At least I didn’t have to sleep with Henry first…”
Rotten Tomatoes can have whatever fancy-schmancy rating system they want, but nothing will keep me away from seeing this film. I’ve much to read and learn about Elizabeth I and her life as queen. There’s nothing like a having a larger than life picture in your head when you get started.
