About The Queen (12A)
Diana, the "People's Princess" has died in a car accident in Paris. The Queen (Dame Helen Mirren) and her family decide that for the best, they should remain hidden behind the closed doors of Balmoral Castle. The heartbroken public do not understand and request that the Queen comforts her people. This also puts pressure on newly elected Tony Blair (Michael Sheen), who constantly tries to convince the monarchy to address the public.
Fancy something special?
Do you fancy a chance to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee before the film? You could be listening to The Polka Dot Dolls and enjoying some tea & cake with us, if you want to take part then click the link below for the Jubilee Celebration. Tickets are £15 each.
Scenes within the Royal household were shot on 35mm film, so they would look lush and cinematic. Scenes within Blair's world were shot on 16mm, so they would look more like television, in order to give visual contrast between commoners and royalty.
