Critics reviews

The Queen, beautifully scripted by Peter Morgan, preaches no particular political line, and plays to no particular bias. Its satire is democratically spread around, and so is its compassion. It is the best film about the political process “from the inside” since Mike Nichols’ underrated Primary Colors (1998).
