In The Queen, Helen Mirren is Her Majesty, and we get to watch her reaction and behavior in connection with Princess Diana's death. Yummers!
She actually kinda looks like the real thing.
I remember the day of Diana's death well. I bet a lot of people do to. I was awaken in my law school dorm in D.C. by crazy students hitting on my door and yelling "Diana is dead! Diana is dead!" I couldn't believe the hysteria. And this was Washington, D.C. Can you imagine what it was like in the U.K.? If you can't imagine, you have got to see The Queen. It's all there.
We had bits of gay content. We see that Diana went to Gianni Versace's funeral and we see that she was close to Elton John. Both big flaming gay homosexuals. Also, at one point, Prince Philip is all mad about the media giving the royal family a hard time for not showing sorrow for Diana's death, and he complains that the list of guests for Diana's funeral was full of 'homosexuals.' Philip is shown in a very bad light in The Queen, perhaps the worst light in the movie, so, his homophobic remark fits him well.
Run to the theaters! You should not miss this one.
