As much as I disdained the Diana adulation, and the way we in America--a supposed republic--squee over monarchy--I admit I do find them fascinating not just as an institution but a way of marking changes in history. And Queen Elizabeth II has seen more than her share. This treats just a short few weeks in her reign: the crisis precipitated by Princess Diana's death. Nevertheless, it somehow gets you a sense of Queen Elizabeth's life, even if like me you're no royal watcher. And Mirren is fantastic--she won a well-deserved Academy Award for Best Actress for this performance--and the film garnered plenty of other nominations and wound up on several Top Ten lists. ( )
