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.

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.

The only qualm I had with this film was a purpose. What was the point of detailing the Queen of England's reactions to the death of Princess Diana. There was a great human condition thing going for the film, but it never really went anywhere interesting, but rather became stuck in the "controversy" of her actions. Helen Mirren did a wonderful job, as did James Cromwell and Michael Sheen, but as a whole, I think once was enough for this particular film.
