The Queen
The Queen (2006)

I've always loved learning about past monarchies, but only recently have I become more interested in the current British monarch. This film was most interesting to me because what I know of the Queen now is more of her relations to the public, which this movie portrays as a more recent change as she deals with the death of Diana and the modern ideas of Diana and Tony Blair. The film struck a good balance between upholding the honor of the position and recognizing some antiquated notions in association with it.

I didn't know who I was supposed to be rooting for, because the heroine hardly seemed to be in it or to have an active role. Vincent Price's character was interesting, but not nearly as complex or realistic as they tried to make him. The movie was nowhere as psychologically interesting as "Gaslight" and therefore a disappointment when I usually enjoy Price films so much.

I naturally classify Bobby Darin up there with Old Blue Eyes and Bing and love his voice. It was fun to find out more about his life, though this is more about his music and the man then it really is about his life. The storytelling was unique and I loved the big Hollywood dance numbers. I would have liked to know more about his early life and how he really got his foot in the door, but the film covered a lot.

I was laughing so hard for the first third of the movie that I was glad to be alone. Her interactions with the Bennett family were priceless! And then the story went completely awry and I felt the character's own dismay. I couldn't believe the writers would do that! I came to really appreciate this movie, though I didn't like what they did to Wickham and Caroline, and it was fun to see the average modern girl score her own Mr. Darcy--a fantasy every girl has had in her life.
