Description

As the UK gears up to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s 70th year on the British throne, Roger Michel’s documentary offers up a special, funny, and sometimes even mischievous celebration of the longest-serving monarch ever. Using unique archival footage, recent images, and home videos from the public, we follow the Queen from her early years, all the way to the media icon she has become today. ‘Elizabeth’ is also the last film from director Michell (Notting Hill, The Duke), who passed away in 2021.

‘Couched in fondness and gentle irreverence, [Michel’s] impressionistic archive-footage documentary offers whimsical reflections on a lifetime of duty and service… The lasting impression from “Elizabeth” is of a woman who has weathered all storms, remaining a figure of stability as Prime Ministers have come and gone, the world has changed beyond recognition, children have presented their distinctive travails and loyal loved ones have died.’—Allan Hunter, Screen
