Bertie and Elizabeth (2002)

The duke of York, nicknamed Bertie (James Wilby), was born as royal 'spare heir', younger brother to the prince of Wales, and thus expected to spend a relatively private life with his Scottish wife Elisabeth Bowes-Lyon (Juliet Aubrey) and their daughters, in the shadow of their reigning father, George V (Alan Bates), and next that of his elder brother who succeeded to the British throne as Edward VIII (Charles Edwards). However Edward decides to put his love for a divorced American, Wallis Simpson (Amber Rose Sealey), above dynastic duty, and ends up abdicating the throne, which now falls to Bertie, who reigns as George VI.

Elizabeth is an archive-based documentary film about the Queen. A celebration. A truly cinematic mystery-tour up and down the decades: poetic, funny, disobedient, ungovernable, affectionate, inappropriate, mischievous, in awe. Funny. Moving. Different. The Queen as never before.
