Movie-A-Day #15: Elizabeth (1998).
The coronation of Queen Elizabeth I took place in Westminster Abbey on Jan. 15, 1559, ushering in one of England’s great golden ages. She’s been depicted in film and television countless times, but the biopic “Elizabeth” is one of the best. It focuses solely on her ascension to the throne and the early years of her reign, and as portrayed by Cate Blanchett, it reveals a young woman of strength, intelligence and determination. No wonder she has gone down in history as one of England’s greatest monarchs.
