Yes, it is old, but it does not come across as such. Right at the start I detected that the picture ‘quality’ was not 21st century, but it is very, very well shot and produced. Once you are in it you get caught up in how luxuriant the cinematography is.

It was on my Amazon Prime watch list. There is no new cricket because of the virus! So, I am forced to watch movies.

I am GLAD I watched this. I really enjoyed it and I learnt a LOT. And to I that is always a bonus and pleasure.

I am invariably shamed and embarrassed that my grasp of British history is rather tenuous. I know a million times more about papal history than I know of British. I would like to rectify it, but, alas, I think it is too late. So, movies like this, which are educational — in addition to being entertaining — are much appreciated and valued.

They do a good job trying to explain the historic context and what the issues are — i.e., trying to keep England from going under a Catholic monarch.

Though it is an historical story, onc can really watch it and enjoy it as a well-produced, lavish, period romance.

It was good. Very good. Highly recommended. Enjoy.

I am not complaining. Honest. So, the latest roadblock was yesterday. But, it wasn’t too major. Not enough to deter my progress. I, of course, prevailed.

The irony was that this was the day after I was rejoicing that my prior roadblock was melting away.

But, it is OK. I will manage. Thanks. SMILE.
