Cate Blanchett makes a bold impact on Blu...

Bust that bodice: Shekhar Kapur’s gallop through Queen Bess’ choppy ascension impacts boldly on Blu. Pitched between blood and fire, pastoral lustre and candle-lit conspiracy, Kapur corrals pace, style and heat to roast period-pic modesty. Cate Blanchett juggles presence and nuance; the vast support cast dwindles by comparison. Shame about the cumbersome sequel, also new to Blu. Extraswise, BD Live joins SD carry-overs.
