The Queen

U.K. director Stephen Frears (High Fidelity, The Grifters) takes the death of Princess Diana and spins it into a pop culture biopic about Queen Elizabeth II. The script speculates on the week after Diana's death, during which the royal family was conspicuously silent and unseen. Michael Sheen (Underworld) matches star Helen Mirren note-for-note as the surprisingly sympathetic Prime Minister Tony Blair, who tries to talk the Queen out of her stiff upper-lip resolve. 97 minutes PG-13.
