That rare biographical film that starts out strong and loses so much steam over the course of its rather short running time. Helen Mirren and Michael Sheen aren't bad but the movie is just boring.

Fascinating look at the political impact of the turbulent weeks following the death of Princess Diana on both the newly elected Labor Prime Minister. Mr.Tony Blair and on the British Royal Family. Helen Mirren and Michael Sheen are extraordinarily good in their roles as the Queen and the Prime Minister respectively.

A great modern period piece featuring a virtuoso performance from Helen Mirren.

The Queen is a tour-de-force investigation into the aftermath of a tragedy that shook a country. Those unfamiliar with the history of Princess Diana's death will be caught up in the bold combination of thematic ideas, incredible acting, and sharp storytelling. Helen Mirren caps an impressive career with one of her most fully bodied performances and Michael Sheen nearly matches her depth with a human portrayal of PM Blair that sidesteps caricature.

That's acting. And rich story telling too. A very unique look at a pivotal week in Britain's history, and the reconciliation of tradition and modernization.

God save the Queen.

The Queen: "A good walk and fresh air sorts everything out".

The film takes place after the death of Princess Diana. The Queen of England refuses to make a supportive statement about the Princess, while Prince Charles and Tony Blair try to diffuse the situation and bring royalty back to popularity.

Stephen Frears the director of this movie did a remarkable job bleeding in the footage and the reaction of this dreadful event, because you can feel what these people are going through and even the Queen herself went through a lot things in this crisis. Helen Mirren as the Queen, and am being honest about this but she gives the best performances that I've ever seen in her career. She played the part so well and so brilliant that through out the film I wasn't watching Helen Mirr...
