    This is magnificent - even tho you know the story - it is so very well presented you will enjoy

    What a movie ---- Even if some of it isn't historical, the basic story is there and I'm quite sure much of the shown emotion could have happened. Having been to London, and seen the Queen's birthday parade - much of it seemed real. I'm one of the few who don't feel the Princess deserved the royal salute she recieved. I pray her sons will follow a better example of how to live their lives, than either their mother or father provided.

    The Queen

    I loved this---thought it very well done. Glad to see Tony Blair supporting the queen as a real human being and attempting to understand her as such... The special features are worth the time, especially.

    Amazing Film

    I have always had an interest in the history of England and the queens and kings who ruled it, but I have never been able to find out any information of much consequence about the country's current ruler, Queen Elizabeth II. For me, "The Queen" offers a rare glimpse behind the palace walls and gives an interesting look at one of the most devestating weeks for the queen, the royal family, and the world with the death of Princess Diana. Finally, Queen Elizabeth is treated, not as a strange monarch from another world, but as a woman, wife, mother, and grandmother. This movie perfectly captures the royal family without making them look like charicatures of themselves, showing us their deeply human flaws and redeeming qualities. The entire cast is perfect in his or her role, and Helen Mirren definately deserved her Best Actress Oscar. Beautifully filmed, without making anyone in the story the villian or tragic character.

    kinda shocked, as they stole the title of my forthcoming biography. . .

    and dame helen mirren was to play the starring role in my the television miniseries adaptation of it, as well!

    but really, it was a truly oscar worthy performance. i expected a little more plot, but as a character study, it was first rate.

    LONG LIVE THE QUEEN

    A finely nuanced film takes you beyond the tabloid accounts and screaming headlines of the days surrounding Princess Diana's death. Doesn't sugar coat less than exemplary behavior and lends some insight into the negotiations behind the pomp and circumstance. Be prepared for a film unlike most you've seen lately. Well done!

    Pay no attention to other reviews, this is great

    Amazing acting by Helen Mirren & James Cromwell who are perfectly cast. All cast is brilliant except for actor who plays Prince Charles who is terribly miscast. You'll find out more than you want to know about the royal family.

    DOWN WITH THE QUEEN!!

    If anything, Helen Mirren could be considered a "good actress" in this movie, but the lame real clips mixed with bad redone scenes are so cheezy bad it ruins, if not mocks Diana's death.
