Set in 1953, Her Majesty tells the story of a young, white New Zealander named Elizabeth -- a delightful girl who, when not practicing her steps for her marching team or innocently crushing on her coach, idolizes the queen of England. Upon discovering that the queen is planning a visit to New Zealand, Elizabeth begins a one-girl letter-writing campaign to try to put her rural town on the queen's travel itinerary. Against all odds, Elizabeth succeeds. The town is thrown into a frenzy of preparation and everything is nearly perfect -- except for the eyesore of a house, right at the entrance to the town, inhabited by Hira Mata, an old Maori woman. Reclusive and mysterious, Hira is the object of mean speculation by the townsfolk and a victim of a band of young hooligans, led by Elizabeth's brother, Stuart. Shocked to see anyone treated so cruelly, Elizabeth seeks out Hira to try to make things right. Their first uncomfortable encounter slowly turns into friendship. As Elizabeth grows closer to Hira she learns the cost of befriending an outcast, and proud Hira must wrestle with her own prejudices. Along the way, long-buried town secrets are revealed and threats to Hira and Elizabeth mount as the time of the royal visit draws nearer. What sets writer/director Mark Gordon's film far above most movies is his ability to craft a morally-complex world that manages to maintain a morally-certain center. He also bucks the trend of cultural self-loathing by creating an appreciative world where one need not hate or reject one's own culture to embrace what is beautiful in another's. Finally, there is an overwhelming sense of the ability of truth and grace to triumph over deceit and petty meanness. Her Majesty is beautifully shot and boasts a marvelous score. I saw this film in the theater and it will be a treasured part of my DVD collection.
