Adapted and directed for television by Charles Sharman-Cox from the stage play of the same name, “The Mother of the Pride” imagines Eleanor of Aquitaine’s last hours in her cell at Fontevrault Abbey in France. It is the tale of a singular and rare human being, a woman born beyond her time, living uncomfortably within her century - a woman prepared to fight tooth and nail for the equality of her sex.
