Her Majesty


New Zealand 2001, 107 minutes
Dir. Mark J. Gordon
Genres: Drama

Topics: Period 1950s.


Aroview: A little-known, but sincerely crafted tale is set in 1950s New Zealand around a young girl's (Andrews) infatuation with Queen Elizabeth II, whose coronation tour is imminent.

Persuading the monarch to visit her small Waikato town (actually Cambridge), Andrews' excitement is checked by her growing friendship with an elderly Maori woman who reveals the darker side of local history. Stirring more intrigue is the young lass's sociopathic brother and the shenanigans of local politicians.

Beautifully shot (by the cameraman of GODS AND MONSTERS), this is an impressively old-fashioned family drama, that while creaking storywise towards its conclusion, manages to sustain its ambitions.
