The Queen

Will Queen Elizabeth turn up for Lady Diana’s funeral? The Queen, directed by Stephen Frier (Dangerous Liasons, Muhammed Ali’s Greatest Fight) is a portrayal of events in the week after Diana’s death. The public, the media, the PMO and the Royal Family all come together in this sharp movie.

Its PM Tony Blair and The Queen. Its modernity and tradition. Masses and classes. Drama and comedy. Emotion and clever satire. And all of it happens around Diana’s death. Brilliant direction. Great production. Superb performances. Its as classy as The King’s Speech.

P.S. | Watch out for the scene where the Queen’s car breaks down. Superbly directed.
