“The Rock on which modern Britain was built” Liz Truss, PM
Dir: Roger Michell | Doc, 89′
As the nation pays tribute to the life of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II, this warm hearted documentary celebrates and reflects on a long reign marked by a strong sense of duty to dedicate her life to her people, and respond to a rapidly changing world.
Roger Michell’s Elizabeth celebrates her 70 year reign with a focus on the “Platinum Jubilee” back in June 2022. Bringing together incredible archives, joyful, uplifting and mischievous, Michell creates an amusingly edited memoire from the archives in celebration of a much loved and treasured monarch (just before he died last September).
Elizabeth is a nostalgic, playful, fresh and modern chronicle of the longest reigning British monarch and longest serving female head of state in history. “To us teenagers she was a babe” croons Paul McCartney reflecting on the time The Queen visited Liverpool in 1971. A remarkable film about an even more remarkable life.
