Securing Her Throne

I've been pretty busy these days, but not too busy to go see Elizabeth: The Golden Age, sequel to the ever-inspiring Elizabeth. Not surprisingly, Cate Blanchett shines like the jewel she is, playing 16th Century England's Protestant Queen once again. If you don't get chills while watching this movie, you're not paying attention. This time around, the costumes, music, and scenery were even better and the stakes (an impending invasion by the Catholic Spanish Armada) were higher. Just look at how cool she is!

Can't wait to see it. Cate Blanchett is AMAZING! And I am a history nerd. It's totally perfect!

She is slave to no master and mother to her people. Truly, she is married to England.

She will not punish her people for their beliefs...only for their deeds. Such a wise ruler.

I still think she needs to get some sun.
