A good, well-made historical biopic that stands out for a luxury cast that does not have a single flaw - notwithstanding the excessive overacting of Timothy Spall in the role of Churchill. [Full review in Spanish]

Of course, the film has its sentimental touches... but the film goes further... it's a fable about friendship, or rather, about loneliness that can be felt by even the most important person in an Empire. [Full review in Spanish]

In any case, the film is fun and emotional without falling into the farce or melodrama, while refusing to exaggerate the facts or invent miraculous cures. [Full review in Spanish]

David Seidler, who wrote the screenplay, clearly did his homework, and the script is rich with dialogue uttered by the royal prototypes. Though he takes artistic license with certain facts, most such liberties are acceptable.

Bonham Carter is a joy as the tender yet sardonic Elizabeth, and the Oscar-bound Firth is both heart-rending and remarkably funny in his best ever role. It's all done so expertly.
February 27, 2018
Overall, this film is a great piece of British cinema that boasts an exciting group of British talents in Firth, Rush and Carter.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Tom Hooper's film is a handsomely made, well-acted story that, for the most part, wins hearts by transforming a potentially mega-watt historical story into a low-key dramedy and mismatched buddy movie.

The film is not even interesting as a work of art.
February 27, 2018
Solid, harmonious. But maybe it could have used a little more nerve, risk. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's the kind of role that's tailor-made for Colin Firth.
March 11, 2016
Simple, moving and incredibly enjoyable.
February 23, 2016
It is a film that knows its limits -- and then transcends them almost casually, but with resonant and powerful effect.
