Lavish, it is true, but factual -- ah, that is another story.

May 21, 2020 | Full Review…

It never caught my interest despite the juicy sensationalist story it promised to tell.

July 29, 2009 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Little more than a competently acted and shot costume drama, it is neither a film of the ages or for the ages; it is a film that has, however, aged, and poorly.

August 22, 2007 | Rating: 58/100
