ELIZABETH AND CLIVE OWEN ;-) THE GOLDEN AGE
One of Alek's favorite movies is Elizabeth. So yesterday we have been to see Elizabeth The Golden Age. How can you not love a movie with Cate Blanchett, Clive Owen about the fantastic life of Elizabeth !!? Watch the trailer.
I haven't seen Elizabeth (I know, shame on me!) but I really enjoyed this movie. I love Cate and Clive, but I also LOVE the fascinating life of this woman. The official website is very well done and has a great section called "Time Line" that you should definitely check out.
Every single image of this movie could be a masterpiece by Rembrandt, some scenes are just stunning. The movie explores the romance between the "Virgin Queen" and noted adventurer Sir Walter Raleigh (Clive Owen) ... how nice it would have been to cross the ocean with him at that time ;-)
Of course the movie got mixed reviews, but as always, I have to see things for myself. I don't usually read critics or really pay attention to them, because it really depends on who you are. I like to share my point of view and discuss but rarely take a one-way-opinion from someone I don't know. So for this reason it's up to you to decided if you are into Clive Owen as dirty adventurer ;-) I won't push you ...
