    Edward II is a 1991 British historical tragedy film directed by Derek Jarman, starring Steven Waddington, Tilda Swinton and Andrew Tiernan. It is based on the play of the same name by Christopher Marlowe. The plot revolves around Edward II of England's infatuation with Piers Gaveston, which proves to be the downfall of both of them, thanks to the machinations of Roger Mortimer.

    The film is staged in a postmodern style, using a mixture of contemporary and medieval props, sets and clothing. (The date "1991" appears on a royal proclamation at one point.) The gay content of the play is also brought to the fore by Jarman, notably by adding a homosexual sex scene and by depicting Edward's army as gay rights protesters.

    One of the most visually beautiful movies I've ever seen. It somewhat oversimplifies Luther's theology, but it's still very well written and well acted. It also has a great score.

    I just ordered this from Amazon:

    11447834.jpeg

    It's a film I've wanted to see for a long time now as it looks very interesting and edgy for its period (the mid-1950's).
