Taking place in 1645 England, King Charles I (Rupert Everett) is in exile for not signing the new Charter. The story is about the relationship between Sir (General) Thomas Fairfax (Dougray Scott) and his underling Oliver Cromwell (Tim Roth). Fairfax's beautiful and wealthy wife, Lady Anne Fairfax (Oliva Williams) is friend to King Charles, and sides with him, attempting to sway the actions of her husband Thomas. Parliament disbands, the king escapes, the king is caught and sent to trial. You'll have to watch the movie to find out how it all ends.

I didn't much care for this movie, the pace was far too slow with too little intrigue to hold my attention. The acting was very good but the sound was bad, the actors speaking in such low volumes. There are also no subtitles available, including subtitles for the hard of hearing, so half the time I couldn't make out what they were saying. If your interested in England's civil war or the reign of King Charles I, then the movie may be worth watching. Otherwise I recommend steering clear. Rent, don't buy.
