This 2006 award-winning film followed Queen Elizabeth II (Helen Mirren) as she dealt with the aftermath and negative reaction to the royal family following Princess Diana's death in 1997. The movie was a hit with critics, thanks in part to its top-of-the-line acting and production (it even earned Mirren the Oscar for best actress) and its accurate behind-the-scenes look at a massive historical event. The fact that the royal family themselves were fans of the project also helped.
