Queen of the Desert (2015)

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.
Strangely stodgy and undramatic illustration of an otherwise highly fascinating biography; at least, first-rate production and some wonderful photography compensate for the tedium.
