"Edward II" is a 1991 film by Derek Jarman based on the play "Edward II" by Christopher Marlowe.

The plot revolves around Edward II of England's (Steven Waddington) infatuation with Piers Gaveston (Andrew Tiernan), which proves to be the downfall of both of them, thanks to the machinations of Mortimer (Nigel Terry).

The film is staged in a postmodern style, using a mixture of contemporary and medieval props, sets and clothing. (The date "1991" appears on a royal proclamation at one point.) The gay content of the play is also brought to the fore by Jarman, notably by adding a homosexual sex scene and by depicting Edward's army as gay rights protesters.
