Please don't learn history from this film

I really wanted to like this movie a lot and there's a lot to like. It stars Cate Blanchett, Clive Owen, and Geoffrey Rush. It's about a really great period of British history. Amazing costumes. Stunning sets.

But.... after watching the movie, I feel I've been bashed over the head with a propaganda film: the movie takes its liberties with history and paints it in broad strokes.

Not my favorite Elizabeth film, but not bad over all.
