That version of Richard III is one of my favorite films. I love old English history and have been following the archaeological dig. It's fascinating.

You've got to read Josephine Tey's "The Daughter of Time" which addresses what Richard III is like in a historical/fiction/detective type small novel. Also check out "Year of the King" by Antony Sher.

I really liked this version. Very clever in realizing the 1930's setting.

"It's got it all: death, royals, and DNA."

Everything but cell phones!

Sharon Kay Penman's The Sunne in Splendour is a GREAT reworking of the Richard III story. It takes some balls to say, "So what if all of Shakespeare is bullshit?"

Though I do love this movie version. Developed SUCH a crush on Ian McKellan. British men talking all Britishly and giving fine speeches will get me every time.


Best reaction I've seen thus far:


Maybe, several centuries from now, archaeologists will get to the bottom of l'affaire Benghazi, and the Republicans hounding Hillary will be vindicated. Until then, they should STFU.
