Subject: To Kill a King out on DVD
A film about the English Civil War focused on Lord and Lady Fairfax,
Oliver Cromwell, and Charles I released last year is now out on DVD
(region 2) only. The producers went bankrupt twice during filming, so
they had to cut all battle scenes (the sort seen in the earlier film,
Cromwell). It's well filmed and gives some insight into just how
difficult it is for many people to accept political change (as we see
now when many U.S. citizens think the country is on the wrong course yet
wish to reelect their President).
