Ann and I went to see The Queen starring Helen Mirren. It’s about the week around Princess Diana’s death, and is in fact as much about Tony Blair as the Queen, but it is her reaction and emotions that are the key. Mirren is as brilliant as ever, but the whole cast is excellent. This film will run perfectly well on a Friday night on TV (it’s made by UK TV company Granada) but it also is a good watch at the cinema. I am now looking forward to seeing The Black Dahlia. This is a noir adaptation of James Ellroy’s novel about two 1940s L.A. cops who head up the hunt for the killer of starlet Elizabeth Short. I also want to see Children of Men which a dystopian future film with Clive Owen.
