MOVIE: THE QUEEN
AN entertaining and disarmingly insightful look at the events s of September 1997 in the UK. As the nation mourns the death of Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II ( a stunning Helen Mirren, pictured) refuses to budge from her Scottish retreat and acknowledge the public’s grief. Meanwhile, new PM Tony Blair ( Michael Sheen) applies his powers of persuasion n to end the stand- off between ruler and subjects. A slyly amusing ng blend of fact, fantasy and hearsay.
