The film makes brilliant use of juxtaposition to underscore the class divide between the Windsors and the Blairs.

The Queen's myopia is so complete, the performances so meticulous, that you can't help but start to care about, or pine for, or want to overthrow the British monarchy.

Helen Mirren gives perhaps her most remarkable performance in an already remarkable career.

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.
October 9, 2008
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
August 7, 2008
Director Stephen Frears' The Queen offers an incisive and utterly persuasive glimpse behind the scenes of recent history.

Whatever the Sex Pistols say, she is a human being.

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.

...a compelling drama that effectively humanizes the title character...

July 28, 2007
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.

... beneath the simple and straightforward facade lies a hidden depth that does not announce itself with dramatic intensity ...

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.
