Here we go again, another English Period Piece. This one is about Queen Anne and it's thinly disguised as a cynical comedy of royal manners. In reality, it's a nasty, vicious, profane, royal story about two women and their devious plotting and scheming against each other, to become the favorite confidant to the Queen. Take confidant, to mean lover;... Read More
