He leaves his acting resume in the hotel room of a screenwriter, who is casting for a TV movie based on the true story of her deceased brother. She hires him to play the lead and the two begin an affair. She becomes increasingly distraught as it becomes evident that the movie's producer is changing her story.

(gb) wrote: A remarkable insight into the private world of the modern monarchy, The Queen reveals poignantly how conservative Elizabeth conceded to the needs of modernity and its media, breaking a 60 year old stance. The plot remains consistent and the acting is of a high quality, Mirren, Sheen and Cromwell especially should be kept in mind. However, there does seem to be something missing. The plot, though as I say remains consistent, also lacks in scenes that we wonder why they are even included and the dialogue can sometimes become suffocating in its stuffiness. The general tone of the film questions why the writers chose this period, out of so many available, that would have made this picture a much more entertaining spectacle. It's good, but it just can't seem to engage sympathy in its 100 minutes of pandering.
(ag) wrote: Never overdone, never underdone, this is a perfectly balanced story that is neither generic nor trite. A fresh and satisfying tragedy told in the genre of horror, this is a film of rare quality.
(nl) wrote: An amazing and essential documentary for everyone to see. Required viewing.

(nl) wrote: A sort of spiritual succesor to the wonderful film Dogville, Manderlay tells a story about slavery now with racism against black people as its main subject, in many ways surpassing its predecesor in many ways but failing in others. Overall, the movie is not only 1 hour shorter than Dogville, but it also feels more focused and the political and social messages it sends are nicely told under a creative and entretaining plot filled with characters that coudlve been fleshed out way better, but ultimately serve their goal, all wrapped up nicely under Von Triers signature dramatic style and all the high points of a historical drama about slavery.
(fr) wrote: As soon as the movie starts a feeling comes to you that this is going to be stupid and it does. Chris Farley, in his last movie, acts well and contains the movie better than Matthew Perry.
(ru) wrote: I saw this right after seeing the new movie, Public Enemy, and it is so similar that it seems like they just copied this movie exactly.
(it) wrote: I love this movie, but question whether the reviewer has actually watched it, or only had it on in the background while doing something else. The synopsis is off kilter.
(br) wrote: An unconventional way in representing an insightful story about the Milgram Experiment. This interesting drama is great in its own regard but not necessarily to my liking as I found the movie to be rather boring and too wordy.
(fr) wrote: Funnier than most parodies of recent years. It still has a certain charm and innocence that while dated is still amusing. Ringo Starr leads a band of misfit cavemen as they try to survive in the harsh prehistoric world.
