The Queen is one of the best films I've seen this year. Stephen Frears takes a bold look at the days following the death of Princess Diana. It is a portrayal of the decisions and motivations of Queen Elizabeth during that week. It shows a very personal and human side to the Queen and her early relationship with Prime Minister Tony Blair. Helen Mirren gives a wonderful performance as the Queen. The politics of the monarchy and Britain are interesting.
