Storyline

A meditation on power and the metaphor of the body of state, based on the real episode of dementia experienced by George III [now suspected a victim of porphyria, a blood disorder]. As he loses his senses, he becomes both more alive and more politically marginalized; neither effect desirable to his lieutenants, who jimmy the rules to avoid a challenge to regal authority, raising the question of who is really in charge.

I just watched this again. It is truly a masterpiece. The story is worthy of Nicolai Gogol -- infinitely sad and funny at the same time...

Wonderful performance from Nigel Hawthorne, and Helen Mirin is the queen! Altogether touching and sad.

Classic theatre to film23 November 2011

This was first a stage play of great merit that was turned into a first rate film - based fairly closely on real events of the everyday life of Royal folk! Well worth seeing.
