Hollywood Buzz #5

O que se diz lá fora acerca de ELIZABETH: THE GOLDEN AGE:



«The Golden Age has sweep and momentum and almost as many mood shifts and genre notes as the queen has dresses. It’s intentionally playful and an inadvertent giggle, an overripe melodrama that’s by turns a bodice-ripper, a cloak-and-dagger thriller and a serious-minded historical drama with dubious contemporary overtones.»
Manohla Dargis, New York Times

«The Golden Age is frustrating because Kapur does seem to have a taste for nutball pageantry - he just won't let himself go all the way it with.»
Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com

«Cate Blanchett can do anything, even play Bob Dylan, but she can't save this creaky sequel to her star-making 1998 biopic of Elizabeth I.»
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

«We are left choking in the billows and folds of Queen Elizabeth I's fabulous finery without a single insight into the woman among them, let alone the most celebrated period in English history.»
Desson Thomson, Washington Post

«By putting Elizabeth's unpursuable attraction to Walter Raleigh, and the feelings of frustration and frailty that go with it, at the core, the queen is strangely diminished and made more common, not more human.»
Todd McCarthy, Variety
