When the Prince of Wales recovers from typhoid, the Queen commands that a Mass of Thanksgiving be held at St. George's Chapel. The Queen was a devout low-church Anglican/Presbyterian in England and Scotland and would have never ordered a mass. In reality, a Church of England Service of Thanksgiving was held at St. Paul's Cathedral. See more »

Magnificent
20 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a treasure. Judi Dench deserved an Oscar for her work. If I ever see her on the street, I will apologize for the stupidity of the Academy. Billy Connolly was terrific also and deserved his own nomination. This movie is magnificent; one of the best I've seen in a long time. Even if you think this kind of thing is too Masterpiece Theatre, I think you would enjoy this.
