New York Magazine (Vulture) - David Edelstein
The Queen is the most reverent irreverent comedy imaginable. Or maybe it's the most irreverent reverent comedy. Either way, it's a small masterpiece.
The New York Times - Manohla Dargis
A sublimely nimble evisceration of that cult of celebrity known as the British royal family.
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
Helen Mirren's allure lies not in finding what's regal in every woman she plays, but in finding what's womanly in every royal.
Newsweek - Unnamed
Marvelous, and surprisingly intimate.
The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
A fascinating mix of high-minded gossip and historical perspective, examines the clash of values -- of ritual and traditions versus media savvy and political ambition -- that leads to a crisis for the British monarchy.

The Queen (2006)

The Queen is an intimate behind the scenes glimpse at the interaction between HM Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Tony Blair during their struggle, following the death of Diana, to reach a compromise between what was a private tragedy for the Royal family and the public's demand for an overt display of mourning.
