The ideal family film for both the children and adults in the family.
11 June 2002 | by PetraBSee all my reviews

"Her Majesty" is a delightful film that addresses light-hearted issues such as girlish crushes and important social commentary like racism, colonial rule, and `selective' history teachings. The story is similar to many told among all ethic backgrounds in New Zealand and around the world.

The beauty of New Zealand only contributes the excellent composure of each shot in this movie. The director of photography, Stephan Katz (Blues Brothers, 1980), allows the viewers a peak into the graceful countryside of New Zealand, but also the wide-eyed imagery that only a child can truly experience. First time director, Mark Gordon takes on all the hardships of working with children (the protagonist, Elizabeth, is played by a first time actor), a dog, and in a foreign country and executes perfectly. Although Mark Gordon is an American from California he manages to delve into New Zealand history and society in a way few New Zealanders would expect.

I personally am keeping my fingers crossed that this film will not be limited to the film festival circuits around the world; I would rather know it will be viewed and enjoyed by others wide spread. If you have an opportunity to see this film don't miss it. It is the ideal family film for both the children and adults in the family.

Enjoy!
