Started my pre-Oscar movie run and saw The Queen this weekend.
As expected, Helen Mirren was quite good (someone I know has an older relative from the U.K. who exclaimed after seeing it "Why I do believe that she is more like the Queen than the Queen!" Wink ).
For those who do not know, the film covers the events immediately following Diana's death. I found it intersting that the whole film essentially takes place in less than 5 days. Such a moment in time but something that, according to the film, changed people's views quite a bit (or at least had the potential to). The story is what it is- a character study and exercise in good casting- but I enjoyed it.

Saw this on dvd this last weekend and it was pretty good, though sad with all the Diana clips.

Same day i saw the movie, the Queenie was at the Kentucky Derby. Ya know, she didn't even sing "My Old Kentucky Home" with the crowd. How rude! But i betcha she drank herself silly with a buncha mint juleps and had some jockey brough back to her hotel suite so she could play "ride the filly" with!
