The Queen


102 minutes

This film is about the drama that unfolded – both in public and in private – in the week following Princess Diana’s tragic death in a car accident in Paris in 1997. The new British Prime Minister was Tony Blair elected only 4 months earlier: he and his team had to deal with both the public’s and the Royal Family’s differing reactions to this shocking event.

The film was a huge critical and commercial success: Helen Mirren (as the Queen) won both an Oscar and a BAFTA for her performance. The film also had six other Oscar nominations for best picture, director, music, original screenplay, and costume design.
