Superb acting and writing. Mirren is always fabulous. The story line was fascinating particularly for one who has lived though all the years depicted. Edward Fox a wonderful Churchill.....I remember him playing a marvelous Edward, Duke of Windsor in films. He resembled Edward and played him well. He got Churchill just right.

Helen Mirren is the Queen

Our theater in Hamilton, NJ was packed, filled the most of all the Fathom Events I have attended. I wonder if it is because people are so interested in the Royals or the longevity of the Queen. Helen Mirren is marvelous playing the Queen again, deserving her Tony Award. It was interesting to learn about the relationships she had with each Prime Minister. I would love to see Helen in person but this was a great alternative. I think more plays and/or musicals should be filmed live and shown in theaters!

Brilliant! Touching and funny! Helen Mirren's performance along with the PM's and the young queen was wonderfully humanizing of the historic, larger than life figure. I loved it! Long live the Queen!!

NT Live: The Audience

LOVED the film and the commentary at the end was a lovely bonus. Dame Helen is an international treasure and Richard McCabe was wonderful - their Tony Awards were well-deserved. (I had seen the play on Broadway in NYC just 3 weeks ago and was thrilled to see them again in this play.) The play was very witty and moving. The set and costume changes were very clever, gorgeous, and of the highest quality. However, I was VERY disappointed when a pivotal scene of one of her audiences with Harold Wilson was lost due to apparent technological problems with the broadcast (satellite?) - and it skipped foward without returning to the point of the initial disruption. Fathom Events: you need to work on this!! Also, could hear some sounds from an adjacent auditorium at the multiplex: Theater Owners: I'm talking to you here!

The acting was amazing but to fully understand the story you need to be a Brit. There was a lot of historical, political references and inside jokes. The theater where I saw this needs a new sound system. I couldn't hear the first half of the movie. I asked for a listening device but it wasn't any help. The second act was louder and much better. (Maybe other people complained.)
