Movie: The Queen
If ever someone earned a best actress Oscar for embodying a role, it’s Mirren. Perhaps she already looks like Queen Elizabeth the second, and that certainly helps, but the dignity she brings to the role, the masterfully constrained emotion: excellent work, good to watch.
The other characterisations are good, but it’s the title role that really shines. If you are old enough to recall Princess Diana’s death, then you’ll find this a compelling story.
