ELIZABETH - THE GOLDEN AGE is an historical drama set against a backdrop of political and social upheaval in late 16th Century England.

Violence

There are several scenes in which bloody injury is briefly shown. The focus is on the historical context, and detail is not dwelt upon. Specific examples include a man having his tongue cut out and a hanging. Some scenes depict gruesome torture of prisoners, specifically one has gruesome wounds on his upper body and another is encased in a cage with small metal spears piercing his skin. In one scene, there is a brief shot of a sailor whose leg has been blown off by cannon fire.

There is infrequent moderate bad language. There is also mild sex and nudity in the form of mild innuendo and a scene showing a woman starting to undress in front of her lover; the nudity is limited to one sight of the queen fully naked seen from the rear.
