Stuffed with stinging truths about swiftly turning winds of public opinion, Stephen Frears' film is a tough, fair-minded and, at times, morbidly satirical depiction of the extraordinary circumstance of leading in grief as well as government.

A lesser director might make all of this deadly earnest, but Frears treats it as what you might call a tragi-comedy of manners, perfectly serious but human foibles everywhere.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

A disappointingly claustrophobic play at sympathy for someone so out of touch with her 'subjects.' And why blow it up for the big screen? . . . Where's the arc? The tragic flaw? The ebbs and flows to her character? . . . A middle-of-the-pack chamber drama

Director Stephen Frears' The Queen offers an incisive and utterly persuasive glimpse behind the scenes of recent history.

Like the Queen, Mirren is saying: This is how you act, this is how you survive, this is how you reign.

I was to this film. It's slow and plodding throughout, yet the format Frears brings to the table is gripping in its balance.

An intelligent script that keeps in the spirit and tone of Britain's House of Mountbatten-Windsor, and yet slyly manages a wink at the audience every now and then.

I never thought I'd get choked up over a movie about the stuffy upper-crust of the British monarchy, but then along came The Queen.

The serio-comic approach offers a confusing portrait of the Queen's public and private faces: part sober drama, part high camp, part soap opera, and part right royal romp.

Un retrato íntimo e interesante en el que lo más sobresaliente es, por lejos, la sobria composición de Helen Mirren.

The remarkable achievement is not just in Helen Mirren's performance -- but in the sly, often almost imperceptible observations of how violently worlds can collide with a fleeting word, a subtle gesture.

...the portrayal is no mere imitation; Mirren creates a living, breathing Queen Elizabeth that goes beyond the public image.
