Queen Margot

Queen Margot
reviewed by Greta Christina

Political intrigue, religious persecution, sexual betrayal, lavish costumes, fiendishly clever poisonings, eloquent dying words, divination of the future from dead human bodies, thousands of murdered Protestants lying in heaps in the streets of Paris, and other wacky 16th century shenanigans. Either you like this sort of thing or you don't. If you do, you'll like this one. It could have used a firmer hand at the editing board, as it runs a bit long and has a slight tendency to drone on. But overall, it's pretty gosh-darned spectacular.
