Directed by Nicholas Hytner, the multi award-winning The Madness Of King George, depicts the King of England's regression into madness during the late 18th century. Although King George III does some very odd things, who could possibly argue with England's most powerful man? Starring Nigel Hawthorn as King George, Helen Mirren as Queen Charlotte, and Ian Holm as Dr. Willis.
The historical accuracy is strong on detail, but there's an element of artistic license, such as the depiction of HRH's apparent partial recovery at the close of the film (although the scene itself, in which Hawthorne's befuddled monarch rallies himself to address his subjects, is a joy). In the end, though, we really don't mind.
On the DVD: the widescreen DVD extras include the theatrical trailer, a featurette and a lucid commentary by director Nicholas Hytner. --Roger Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
