Based on the early reign of Queen Elizabeth I, this 1998 film showcases the immense challenges of ruling a kingdom (especially for females) while dazzling audiences with Academy Award nominated costume design and art direction.Never has hardship looked so sumptuous!

ELIZABETH is packed with the classiest actors in the biz, from Geoffrey Rush to Richard Attenborough, and Joseph Fiennes handsomely performs his swoon-inducing duty. But of course, it’s really all about Cate Blanchett in the titular role, which won her a Golden Globe and launched her career as a bona fide star.

As Elizabeth, she defies societal convention, fights against power-hungry noblemen, launches military battles and still manages to look completely gorgeous the entire time. At this Afternoon Tea screening, we’ll crown her the queen of our hearts while sipping on tea as beautifully complex as the costumes and snacking on treats as delicious as the intrigue. (Sarah Pitre)
