Jonathan Jones said:
The main character Elizabeth succeeds the throne after her Catholic sister Mary falls ill. They have a conversation about her possible involvement in Protestant uprisings toward the start of the film, and another upon Mary's deathbed concerning Catholicism. The rest of the film has no conversations between women.
