The Queen ( Blu-ray )

Helen Mirren is a dead ringer for Queen Elizabeth II in Stephen Frear's multiple award-winning film that centres on the aftermath of Princess Diana's untimely death. Following Diana's messily tabloid split from her husband Charles and publicly stated disdain for the royal family, the Queen's reaction to her death was conflicted and, in the eyes of a stunned public, too slow and too cold. More than ably supported by Michael Sheen as Prime Minister Tony Blair, and James Cromwell as her husband, Prince Phillip, Mirren's Oscar-winning performance is a regal tour-de-force, bringing insight to one of the world's most well-known, and yet most private women.
