Review:

Mysterious, seductive, exotic--Cleopatra has long enticed us through legends and fiction. The last queen of Egypt, Cleopatra still enthralls, more than 2,000 years after her reign. Shari Belafonte hosts Lifetime's look at the ruler who almost brought down the Roman empire in Intimate Portrait: Cleopatra, a video that attempts to separate the myth from the truth about this captivating woman. Despite common misconception, Cleopatra was Greek and not particularly beautiful; Plutarch, writing about her 150 years after her death, noted that her reputation came from her charm and intelligence (she spoke seven languages). Scholars and authors discuss her life--her marriages to and disputes with her brothers, her affair with Julius Caesar and the son they produced, her affair with Marc Antony, her political machinations, and her eventual suicide. Using images from feature films, paintings, sculptures, and tasteful recreations, this Intimate Portrait unravels the layers of mystery to reveal "a queen who was a mother and a successful sexual woman... the most powerful of her legacies to the women who live today." --Jenny Brown
