CGiii Comment

At the risk of sounding like a philistine, this is very difficult to take seriously.

Really, watch it for McKellen's hair and codpiece.

Theatrical and hysterical...a tragedy that shouldn't be so funny.


The(ir) Blurb...

The reign of Edward II, King of England, is troubled from the start when he brings his male lover, hated by the nobles, out of exile.
