Anne-Marie Duff stars as the enigmatic "Virgin Queen" in a biopic about the life of one of Britain's greatest monarchs,
Elizabeth I. Her femininity baffled and threatened the male order of Renaissance England for more than forty years.
Paula Milne's powerful script about the long and eventful life of England's iconic Queen was filmed against
a backdrop of some of Great Britain's most beautiful houses and landscapes. The "Virgin Queen" explores the full sweep of
Elizabeth's life: from her days of fear as a potential victim of her sister's terror, through her great love affair
with Robert Dudley, into her years of triumph over the Spanish Armada, and finally her old age and her last,
enigmatic relationship with her young protégé, the Earl of Essex.
The cast also includes Joanne Whalley, Dexter Fletcher, Tara Fitzgerald, Sienna Guillory, Tom Hardy, Ian Hart, Robert Pugh, Kevin McKidd, Hans Matheson, Emilia Fox, Ben Daniels, Ewen Bremner and Bryan Dick.
This film is made for television and not rated.
