Another serious drama of the kind that reminds me of “health food” — good for you but tastes horrible. But I’m currently almost finished with World Without End, a book set in England in the 1300s, and that’s why I recorded this film on my HD channel. To my surprise, this turned out to be a fascinating film of political intrigue. You learn how Elizabeth’s promotion to queen was unexpected and everyone thought she’d be dead in a week, but somehow she survived assasination attempts and political actions and became a great queen. Very cool.
