My private opinion of ESCORIAL

A fencing Jason Isaacs--in tights, no less!! Sorry--a historical drama concerning machinations and maneuverings in the court of Spain's Philip II, erstwhile husband to England's Queen Mary Tudor and dispatcher of the ill-fated Armada. Velvet and ruffed collars. Unfortunately, it appeared only sporadically in theatres, and is tough to find even on DVD.

Daggone, I'm so disappointed! I've especially wanted to see "Good", since it meant so much to Jason. I'll follow grannybear and sign on with Amazon and see what happens. Thanks all. :hug

Wolfsaver--you'll find Good listed under Viggo Mortenson's movies.

Jeebus! Thanks for that video, Thunder!

Our man manages to make these silly costumes look manly! Rwoarrrr... But, you know, like we say in French, "Un rien l'habille" (which could be translated by "he can wear anything")

Who's that other woman in the video? His wife?
