Goofs

When the Princess and Jack arrive at the air field, we see them driving through a very run down clearly abandoned site, there is paint flaking from buildings and greenery growing from guttering and roadways, suggesting they haven't been used for a long time. While you might expect the site to look 'war torn', you wouldn't expect it to look, disused as it would now. See more »

An enjoyable film painstakingly and lovingly realised. Highly recommended.
20 May 2015 | by (Sheffield, England.) – See all my reviews

I'd been looking forward to A Royal Night Out's release since first seeing the trailer a few weeks ago. Now, after seeing the film, I'm happy to report that I wasn't disappointed. The action begins slowly, but once the royal sisters become enmeshed in London's VE night revelries I found myself being carried along by events in ways that were at times funny, at times exciting, at times emotionally moving - even at times with feelings of national pride - but always with interest and anticipation. One 'bonus' I hadn't expected was that the story would also feature elements of a very touching love story. This latter, for me, endowed the story with a certain 'fairy tale' quality. (But it is a film of fiction ... so, why not??) The three leads - Elisabeth, Margaret and Jack - are all excellent. Supporting actors and actresses of the cast provide additional variety and entertainment and play their parts with apparent enthusiasm. A lot of work obviously went into recreating the crowd, traffic and London scenes of 1945 and clothing styles seemed authentic to me. All in all a worthwhile undertaking painstakingly and lovingly realised. Go see this film. My bet is you'll be glad you did. Highly recommended. 8/10.
