Queer osvobozuje od tradič- ního vnímání sexuálních a genderových identit založe- ných na neměnných katego- riích muž / žena, hetero-sexuální / homosexuální.

Edward II.

In “Edward II”, Jarman freely adapts the work of the same name of Christopher Marlowe, gay enfant terrible of Renaissance theatre; spiking it with topical political content. The plot unfolds in a minimalist setting of bare walls; focusing our attention on the excellent performances of the actors and avant-garde costumes. Young English king Edward II has Piers Gaveston as both his advisor and lover. This fact evokes the displeasure of Edward’s wife Isabelle (mesmeric Tilda Swinton), who manipulates the noble Mortimer to remove Edward from the throne. An unforgettable film.
