Saw the film "The Queen" last night. I'd been really looking forward to it, especially after the lovely Helen Mirren won an Oscar for her portrayal of the Queen. But...I was quite disappointed. It all felt very fluffy and light and with all the actors (apart from Helen M) continually gurning and doing the appropriate hand gestures of the Royals and politicians involved it felt a bit like the Rory Bremner show, but without the laughs. I don't know. I expected something a bit more weighty with a bit more gravitas. I expected it to feel a bit more real.
