The clip elizabeth consults with Dr. Dee from Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007) with Cate Blanchett, David Threlfall
The fall of an empire, you told me.
Did you mean the English empire?
Because, by God, England will not fall while I am Queen.
If that is your prophecy, sir, you prophesy again.
You want me to tell Your Majesty
only what Your Majesty chooses to hear.
I will not be a toy of the fates!
Have I not faced an assassin's bullet and lived?
Just tell me there's no certainty.
That any outcome is possible.
The shadow of ghosts, you said.
Please, just give me hope.
The forces that shape our world are greater than all of us, Majesty.
How can I promise that they'll conspire in your favor,
even though you are the Queen?
But this much I know.
When the storm breaks, each man acts in accordance with his own nature.
Some are dumb with terror.
Some flee. Some hide.
spread their wings like eagles and soar on the wind.
You are a wise man, Dr. Dee.
And you, madam, are a very great lady.
