Elizabeth I (2005) Helen Mirren, Jeremy Irons

                                            As you watch pay attention to key events and characters. This film is so detailed you may want to watch it twice.                                     (take notes)

Vatel (2000) Gerard Depardieu, Uma Thurman, Tim Roth

Don’t worry about the key events and characters, this is a little later than our period but it gives an excellent picture of a household dealing with a royal visit. Pay close attention to how the social structure works between members of the household, the family, and the courtiers. This is the feeling we strive to recreate. This also gives a good perspective on what it would have meant for the monarch to visit a noble, both the possibility for wealth for the entire region and the incredible expense of entertaining the court.
