The Queen (2006)

Helen Mirren's performance as Queen Elizabeth II is spookily accurate – from her stony glances after the death of Diana to her regal poses and old lady sighs, even the country walking gear for picnics up at Balmoral seems made for her. We get to imagine how the Queen told off Blair in the late 90s and the tense relationship with the Princess of Wales. Monarchist or not, this’ll guarantee some sort of kind feelings towards old Lizzy.
