A chronicle of Gertrude Bell’s life, a traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attaché for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century. — IMDB

Better than the critics (who have given mainly negative reviews) say it is. I found learning about this rather amazing woman very interesting and informative. Nicole Kidman does a pretty good job of Gertrude Bell with reasonable supporting actors. The story could have delved into the Bell’s motivations a bit more and with a bit more tension. But it is an adequate movie and worth seeing.
