The Queen (2007)

Written By Awir Aditya on Saturday, June 13, 2009 | 10:18 AM


Genre: Documentary/Drama

Starring: Helen Mirren, James Cormwell, Michael Sheen

One might want to call this movie a documentary, which is true but not completely. The movie kicks off by showing news clippings of the sudden death of Princess Diana. The people of England are taken aback and each person has a different reaction, be it the People of Britain, the Prime Minister, Tony Blair (Sheen) or the Royal Family within Balmoral castle. A lot of complications arise since The Queen (Mirren) and the Royal Family are refusing to acknowledge and give Princess Diana the respect she deserves since she isn't a part of the family anymore. The movie has managed to showcase and bring out some very essential moments and reactions of the Royal Family, earlier unknown to most people. Helen Mirren's performance as Queen Elizabeth has played the essential role in the movie quite nicely to bring out its charm, which it might have lost if it wasn't for her. The numerous awards won by this movie all for the same title (Best Actress) makes you want to watch it just for the sake of the good acting, which I am pleased to say, is exceptional.

Rating 7.9/10
