the queen

Helen Mirren portrays Queen Elizabeth II with compassion, dignity, and absent of satire in the days following the death of “the people’s princess” former Princess of Wales, Diana Spencer in this docu-drama. The film is so realistic that Tony Blair quoted dialog from it in his own biography—erroneously of course! Mixing real footage with dramatized scenes, this fast paced little film is fun to watch even when you know the outcome. Helen Mirren had considerable influence on the scene where the Queen encounters a buck while hunting on her estate, and it’s a pivotal point in the film. [uk, 2006]
