    For over two-thousand years, the legend of the beautiful Queen of the Nile has stirred the imagination. Ascending to the throne at a mere seventeen years of age, Cleopatra (Leonor Varela) ruled as Egypt`s last Pharaoh for twenty-two years. Easily winning the heart of Roman Emperor Julius Caesar (Timothy Dalton), they embark on a two-month voyage down the Nile and quickly become devoted to each other. She bears him a child whom they call Caesarion.

    Keeping a close eye on the relationship, the Roman Senators conspire to assassinate Caesar. His death devastates Cleopatra. In her grief, she turns to Marc Antony (Billy Zane), a Roman she can trust. Their alliance angers Rome even more and war is declared on Egypt. Cleopatra and Marc Antony`s fate becomes sealed in each other`s arms as the Roman army closes in.

    Beautifully directed and stunningly photographed, CLEOPATRA reigns as one of the greatest love stories in history.
