This is a fascinating story of what it means to be a monarch. The screenplay is smart, funny, caustic and engaging. Many historical figures are seen throughout the film, such as Winston Churchill (an amazing Timothy Spall, who was last seen as Peter Pettigrew in Harry Potter), Neville Chamberlain (Roger Parrott) and the Princess Elizabeth (Freya Wilson) whom we all know grows up to be Elizabeth II. This is a wonderful film for the whole family.
