FROM THIS EPISODE

elizabeth.jpg

Director Shekhar Kapur (Bandit Queen, The Four Feathers) has mastered bringing flesh and blood to the epic film.  The story he began with Elizabeth in 1998 continues with Elizabeth: The Golden Age. He discusses combining grandeur and intimacy.

Shekhar talks to Elvis about his interest in heroism as it's displayed in women, the mythological aspects of Elizabeth I and her rule, and how we only achieve harmony when we destroy structure. Shekhar also describes Sir Walter Raleigh (played by Clive Owen) as a renaissance man who excited Elizabeth and, in so doing, gave her freedom from fear.
