Will ESCORIAL be showing in England or the U.S. anytime soon

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.

:oops: Just wanted to ask. Maybe someone knows, since the dvd is not available from Spain.

I saw a copy of this on sale on Ebay, a few weeks ago...

I don't think we will see this in the US, unless it comes on Cable...

I have seen it (I have the DVD), and even though I always enjoy watching Jason, I am afraid that the film probably isn't good enough for an international release.aaa.gif

:oops: I hope I'm wrong, of course... :oops:

Hm, yes, I have a copy in Spanish...not so difficult for me to understand because it's similar to Portuguese (but who cares what language he speaks!)
