The movie was outstandingly good and I recommend it to everyone. One thing I would note. While Colin Firth has been receiving a lot of attention--and deserves to because he is AMAZING--I don't think enough has been said about how good Helena Bonham Carter is as Elizabeth. She gave an amazing performance.
If you haven't gone to see it you should. I'm so glad we snuck out for a ladies night on a cold, miserable day.
