Alternate Chapel - Leadership Week: Film

  • Date: February 3rd, 2015
  • Location: Parmer Cinema (Boyer Hall 137)
  • Time: 19:00 - 21:00
  • Cost:

The purpose of Leadership Week is to generate conversations and education regarding service-leadership and the College's leadership model. The film being show is "The Queen" a film released in 2007: The Queen is a 2006 British historical drama film depicting the British Royal Family's response to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales on 31 August 1997. The film was directed by Stephen Frears, written by Peter Morgan, and starred Helen Mirren in the title role of HM Queen Elizabeth II.[2] In the film, the Royal Family regards Diana's death as a private affair and thus not to be treated as an official Royal death. This is in contrast with the views of Tony Blair and Diana's ex-husband, Prince Charles, who favor the general public's desire for an official expression of grief. Matters are further complicated by the media, royal protocol regarding Diana's official status, and wider issues about Republicanism. The film's release coincided with a revival of favorable public sentiment in respect to the monarchy and a downturn in fortunes for Blair, whose resignation came several months later. Michael Sheen reprised his role as Blair from The Deal, and he did so again in The Special Relationship. The Queen also garnered general critical and popular acclaim for Mirren playing the title role, for which she earned her numerous awards. Mirren was also praised by the Queen herself and invited to dinner at Buckingham Palace[3] (though she could not attend due to filming commitments in Hollywood[4]). Discussion Facilitated by: Dr. Michael Zigarelli, Evie Telfer
