Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

The BBC broadcast of this critically lauded production, after its transfer to London, caused a sensation with its uncompromised portrayal of Edward's sexuality, including the first kiss between two men on British television. Christopher Marlowe's play is remarkably modern. It is perhaps surprising to realize that this open depiction of love between two men is 400 years old. Edward II is a flawed ruler, his reign marred by civil strife and rebellion, but it was his love life, and not his inept leadership, that ultimately turned the nobles against the king. The play begins with the return of Edward's favorite courtier, Gaveston (James Laurenson, "MI-5", "State Of Play"), from exile and his open declaration of love for the king. Edward's devotion to Gaveston, and his stubborn refusal to give him up, is at the heart of the tragedy of the play.
