The Queen – March’s English Film of the Month

The Queen

The Queen portrays the events leading up to and following the death of Princess Diana. The film gives a behind the scenes glimpse at the interaction between HM Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Tony Blair during their struggle to reach a compromise between what was a private tragedy for the Royal family and the public’s demand for an overt display of mourning. It’s not a heavy, heart-wrenching film, in fact at times it is positively light hearted, but Helen Mirren gives an incredible performance, well let’s face it she’s up for every award out there. Not to be missed.
