Nope, nothing to do with Priscilla, whatever way one swings, or gender identity; but in reality a very good movie based on the life and WW1 adventures of the incredible Gertrude Bell.


Turning away from privileged Victorian Britain, Gertrude Bell explored, mapped and excavated the world of the Arabs, winning the trust of Arab sheiks and chieftains along the way. When the First World War erupted and the British needed the loyalty of Arab leaders, Gertrude Bell provided the intelligence for T.E. Lawrence's military activities. After the war, she played a major role in creating the modern Middle East, and was generally considered the most powerful woman in the British Empire.


Here's a link to, imo, her best biography:-

Sounds very interesting.  I am not sure when we will be able to see it though.  I have a multi region player for things that are not released here but it seems that will not help in this case.  The link has this warning: This item does not ship to the United States.  I have bought many items from UK, German and Italian Amazon and never seen that before. :blink:
