I was all fired up to see this poetential "Academy Award" nominee for best picture... and came home disappointed. The actress Helen Miren was best actress material? I don't think so. She mastered the rigidity of the queen well. Did I learn very much about the royal family? Very little, except to see that poor Charles doesn't have very good role models. I think it was a silly plot - how the royals dealt with the aftermath of Di's death. The actual footage of Di was captivating. With her wealth, she was SO pretty... and a bit of a naughty nonconformist. Tony Blair gets postive treatment. Phillip, goodness sakes, is not very likable. I was hoping to at least get one juicy tidbit about Dianna, but didn't even get that.
One of the best movies of the year. it's a thrill that I got a chance not tlo view an excellent movie, but to see a professional like Helen Mirren drove right into her character withy the energy that gave it it's life. The film centers around the life of the queen on the week of the death of Princess Diana and how the queen react to the tragedy. I can recall the week that Princess diana had died. I've cried for weeks. It really broke my heart when she died. I wrote a tribute to her two days after she died. It was a tough time for me. But back to the movie. I though it was well-made with a strong cast. I love this movie and I'm putting it on my top 10 list of 2006. Mirren as the queen as convinced me.
