With style, passion, and intelligence, Elizabeth answers the question lurking silently amid mounting slag heaps of cheesy Princess Di memorabilia: What is this thing we have about royalty?

It's almost guaranteed to get a couple of Oscar nominations in the technical categories, and I think Blanchett deserves one, too.

I ended up liking it, even though I kept wishing it was over.

This historical drama is more concerned with showing tawdry sex, convoluted conspiracies and surprisingly violent killings than it is with telling the real story.

Kapur draws the best from an outstanding cast and delivers both an atmospheric romance and a mature exploration of a big theme - the dark duplicity, betrayal, and grubby ambition that runs through Britain's bloodthirsty history.

Kapur certainly throws a lot her way, but such is Blanchett's ability that she carries it all off.

"Elizabeth" is history rendered with enough brains and imagination to more than make up for its fewstumbles.

Shekhar Kapur is not a native of Great Britain but was raised in India, who admittedly knew little about Elizabeth when assigned this film.

This is a fine piece of filmmaking that gives you history but still contains the right elements of sex, intrigue and suspense to keep it from being starched.

Not only makes the traditionally stuffy and aloof British costume drama accessible, but entertaining and exciting as well.
