5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Dont know how I missed this film, perhaps straight to dvd. Not as good as Kings Speech, but that was absolutely great. This is a lovely story, well acted and some very good actors in it. Highly recommend it if you like films about royalty,

Description

Wars, kings, and politicians come and go, but love endures. Bertie & Elizabeth charts one of the greatest love stories of the century: the love affair between Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, a beautiful fun-loving young woman from an aristocratic Scottish family and the Duke of York, a shy young man second in line to the throne. Married in 1923, they are thrust into the limelight in 1936 when Bertie's older brother, Edward VIII, abdicates to marry the twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson. As George VI and Queen Elizabeth, they inspire a nation. A superb British cast brings this memorable story to life.

James Wilby (Gosford Park) and Juliet Aubrey (Middlemarch) portray the reluctant royals who become king and queen of England. The film also stars Alan Bates (The Mayor of Casterbridge and Hard Times) as Bertie's father, King George V; Eileen Atkins (currently starring with Bates and Wilby in Gosford Park) as his mother, Queen Mary; Charles Edwards as Edward VIII; and Amber Rose Sealey as Wallis Simpson.
