Trivia

Actress Helena Bonham Carter, who plays Jane the Queen of England in this film, albeit for a very short period of time, later played a queen twice in the one year. Bonham Carter has the distinction of appearing in two of the 2011 Academy Award winning movies, The King's Speech (2010) (winning 4 Oscars) and Alice in Wonderland (2010) (winning 2 Oscars). In both movies, Bonham-Carter plays a queen, Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mum of Queen Elizabeth II) in The King's Speech (2010) and The Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland (2010). Ironically, Bonham Carter's the Red Queen image was inspired by Bette Davis's Queen Elizabeth I character in The Virgin Queen (1955) i.e. another Queen Elizabeth of England. See more »

Wonderful Film!
16 October 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I had to watch this movie for a British History course, and I was fully expecting to be bored during the entire thing, but I was so pleasantly suprised! This was a great movie - great acting, directing, plot, settings, etc. And apparently it's a great movie to watch to get a feel for that period in England, 'cause my professor made us watch it. I would definitely recommend this movie to anybody who has ever watched and enjoyed any period drama before!
