Richard III continues to gaze just a bit too fondly, and in a very un-avuncular way, at his winsome young niece Elizabeth as she dances at court. Of course, Richard’s wife Anne gets a bit frosty – who can blame her – but the couple are soon united in fear for the future of their sickly young son when he develops Costume Drama Cough.
As this stately adaptation of Philippa Gregory’s Wars of the Roses novels ends the houses of York and Lancaster meet for a final and decisive time on Bosworth field. The battle scenes look genuinely frightening and you might even feel a tiny bit sorry for Richard as he and his crown tumble to earth. Someone get that man a horse!
Elizabeth and her girls are freed from sanctuary and her first-born daughter, Princess Elizabeth, goes to court, blossoms, and falls for Richard III. The death of Anne provides hope that the lovers will marry and the Woodville dynasty will continue as queens of England, but battle looms with Henry Tudor waiting to invade and claim the throne from a man seen by many as a usurper.
