We are eased into the story as we watch a well paced installation of Tony Blair (Michael Sheen, who really looks more like Tim Curry) as Great Britain's Prime Minister. Then we dive right into the death of Lady Di with actual news footage in a sound bite format.

The Story is a clash between the "traditional" attitude of the Queen, HM Queen Elizabeth II (Helen Mirren) and her immediate family with a more "modernized" view of the Prime Minister and his advisers on how the death should be handled.

There are many underlying factors that are well balanced in this movie with out changing the pathos to a monolog documentary. The addition of a stag being brought down by a clumsy paying guest on a neighboring estate can be both a metaphor and at the same time give the Queen a more-than-meets-the-eye appearance.

It is redressing to get a different perspective on the incident. As the Queen states," There has been a shift in values."

I think the producers chose the actors wisely; I especially approve of the choice of Helen Mirren. I first saw her in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" 1968 and she has played progressively more important roles to mature to this role and hopefully beyond.

Good lord, where to begin. I saw this movie in theatres the second it opened here in Toronto; I wasn't particularly interested in the British Royal Family prior to having seen it and I didn't know much about Helen Mirren at all; I'd only seen her in Calendar Girls, but I thought the subject matter would be interesting and I was curious as to how they'd manage to pull off a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II.

I love this movie. I love everything about this movie, from the writing to the directing to the acting - especially the acting. Michael Sheen is terrific and captures the younger Tony Blair's boyish charm, enthusiasm, and knack for being in touch with what the public wants. James Cromwell and Sylvia Syms were great as Prince Phillip and the late Queen Mum, respectively, and Alex Jennings was adequate as Prince Charles; he at least half-convinced me that he was a whiner, which is what my opinion of Prince Charles was and still is. However, this movie of course belongs to Helen Mirren, who is a goddess of acting. She pefectly captures Queen Elizabeth II's grace, dignity, sense of duty, and dry wit, and manages to convey the sense of bewilderment that one would assume is natural for a person to feel when people who've loved you all your life suddenly hate you for doing what you think is appropriate. Regardless of Queen E's personal feelings about the late Princess Di, she did not stay holed up at Balmoral out of spite; she stayed there because she wanted to keep what was going on private. She doesn't believe in big public displays of emotion and never has, and prior to Princess Diana's death, the British public were by and large all right with that.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2007
Format: DVD
The British royal family has weathered abdications, wars, and scandal. But one of the nastiest hits to them in the twentieth century came when Princess Di was killed.

And so "The Queen" tries to get inside the perfectly-permed head of the British Queen Elizabeth II, nearly ten years ago. Helen Mirren gives an Oscar-worthy performance as the title character, as she attempts to weather public and personal difficulties. Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.

The movie opens with the election of Tony Blair (Michael Sheen), who comes to visit the queen (Mirren), despite being rather nervous about his new job. The country has been off balance ever since Di died in a car crash a few weeks ago, and her passing leaves the royals with mixed feelings. The queen decrees that since Diana divorced Prince Charles, she was no longer a royal, and her arrangements are to be left to her family.

What she doesn't realize is that the people ADORED Diana, and continue to adore her in the weeks that follow. Then the press joins in, berating the royal family for coldly ignoring the ex-princess, and heralding the Labour Party Blair. Her husband and mother think that she should continue doing nothing -- but the Queen has learned that sometimes the people need to be appeased.

"The Queen" unfolds slowly like an old book, and Stephen Frears gives it the dignified gloss that usually belongs to older movies. Scenes that could have been maudlin or cliche are underplayed, which makes them more powerful. One example is of the queen peering in as Charles tells his young sons that their mother has died.

Fortunately, as in real life, there's also comedy as well as confusion and tragedy; Peter Morgan injects some humor when a nervy Blair meets the Queen for the first time.

1997 was a very tumultuous year for the royal family of Britain, the Queen and almost all her family were really... Not well liked at that time. Hellen Mirren gives another fantastic performance as the Queen herself. It's very easy to see that she just doesn't realize what she's doing wrong. Which I love. The acting was fantastic, and the quips from Tony Blair and his wife were hilarious and very fitting. A good slooooow movie. If you're interested in royalty or maybe finding out what the royals thought of Diana (I bet the public sees her veeeeeery differently than they do/did) then this is a just watch.
