So, if you know me, you may be familiar with my slight obsession with English monarchs. I ordered The Queen off of my Netflix DVD queue because it is a movie about Queen Elizabeth. Played by Helen Mirren, the movie showcases the Queen dealing with the nation after the death of Princess Diana.
I was absolutely fascinated by the idea of that the movie because Princess Di's death did not only affect the U.K., it threw the entire Western world in a tizzy.
Too bad it was boring as all hell.
Well, 'boring' isn't the right word. I appreciated Mirren's performance but the story arc itself was just super understated and slow. And I can enjoy a good understated film (Lars and the Real Girl anyone?). I guess I just hyped myself up thinking there was going to be a bit more drama and female empowering monologues/speeches (I mean it is about the queen of England).
