Great movie depicting the tragic life of Lady Jane grey. Though historical, it is more focused on the love story aspects. A conspiracy that pushes them to the throne only to be ousted and killed in the end.Loving each other to the very end. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Cary Elwes is the lead actor! :D

"Filming Pride & Prejudice was a of my happiest summers ever. It could well be that the story brings out the best in people - and it sounds so cheesy, but we really did behave like a family…we picnicked, hung out in a beautiful country house and went swimming naked in a lake. It was idyllic."
