Summary
  • The Queen begins with a familiar epigraph "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown"--Henry IV, Part II. The action of the film takes place during the week following the death, on August 31, 1997 of Diana, Princess of Wales. One of its accomplishments, courtesy of adroit use of newsreel and other contemporary footage, is to remind viewers of the deep sadness that surrounded that event. It is also about the divergent and potentially ruinous ways the monarch and Prime Minister Tony Blair responded to the resulting torrent of national grief
  • "... the provocative story behind one of the most public tragedies of our time -- the sudden death of Princess Diana. In the wake of Diana's death, the very private and tradition-bound Queen Elizabeth II finds herself in conflict with the new Prime Minister, the slickly modern and image-conscious Tony Blair ... [the film] takes you inside the private chambers of the Royal Family and the British government for a captivating look at a vulnerable human being in her darkest hour, as a nation grieving for its People's Princess waits to see what its leaders will do. Suspenseful, heartfelt and riveting, it's a fascinating story you won't soon forget."--Container notes
