Queen of screen

26th October 2007 at 01:00
To celebrate the release of Elizabeth: The Golden Age in cinemas on November 2, The TES Magazine has teamed up with Universal Pictures to give you the chance to see the film first - and for free.

The film tells the thrilling tale of an era - the story of one woman's crusade to control love, crush enemies and secure her position as a beloved icon of the western world. As Elizabeth's cousin Mary Stuart conspires with Philip of Spain to topple the throne, Sir Francis Walsingham, Elizabeth's trusty adviser, works tirelessly to protect her from the many plots and conspiracies against her. Preparing to go to war to defend her empire, Elizabeth struggles to balance royal duties with an unexpected vulnerability in her attraction to Sir Walter Raleigh.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age is directed by Shekhar Kapur, who also directed the 1998 Oscar-nominated Elizabeth. Cate Blanchett returns as Elizabeth, the role that won her a Best Actress nomination nine years ago; Geoffrey Rush reprises his role as Walsingham; Clive Owen plays Raleigh and Samantha Morton portrays Mary, Queen of Scots
