Joining them in the epic is Clive Owen as Sir Walter Raleigh, a dashing seafarer
and newfound temptation for Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: The Golden Age finds Queen Elizabeth I (OscarŽ-winner Cate Blanchett)
facing bloodlust for her throne and familial betrayal. Growing keenly aware of
the changing religious and political tides of late 16th century Europe,
Elizabeth finds her rule openly challenged by the Spanish King Philip II (Jordi

(Academy AwardŽ winner Geoffrey Rush), continues his masterful puppetry of
Elizabeth's court at home--and her campaign to solidify absolute power. Through
an intricate spy network, Walsingham uncovers an assassination plot that could
topple the throne. But as he unmasks traitors that may include Elizabeth's own
cousin Mary Stuart (Samantha Morton), he unknowingly sets England up for
Elizabeth: The Golden Age tells the thrilling tale of an era...the story of one
woman's crusade to control love, crush enemies and secure her position as a
beloved icon of the western world.
