MOVIE: THE QUEEN

SCT, 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

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.
