Who's the whore?


A British retelling of the times of Charles I, the Civil War and the regime of Oliver Cromwell, all through the story of Angelica Fanshaw, "a true account of her life and times."

Well.....no. According to an English history expert on the period, not at all.

A work of propaganda, feminist, anti-religious, class-war-ish, with a heroine as misguided as she is headstrong. But with the always watchable Dominic West as the Lord Protector. So it was not entire loss.

Whatever would the Left do without women of privilege who've decided to put themselves on the margins in a prophetic ministry while still retaining their privileges and upper-middle class lifestyles?
You'll notice she still keeps the estate at the end and all that land for herself and her daughter. Wonder if the 17th century had a term like "Volvo voter" or "limousine liberal"?
