Edward II

Country: UK

Genre: Historical Drama, Romance



The Plantagenet King Edward II spurns his wife (Tilda Swinton) for the charms of Piers Gaveston, a young upstart on whom he showers gifts and titles. This open favouritism ferments a revolt on the part of the ambitious Mortimer, who forms an alliance with the love-starved Queen to depose the king and rule the realm through the king's son, Prince Edward (Jody Graber).


  • Based on the play of the same name by Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593)
  • Directed by Derek Jarman (1942-1994), using a mixture of contemporary and medieval props, sets and clothing, and featuring at one point the singer Annie Lennox serenading Edward and Gaveston with a rendition of Cole Porter's "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye".
