Great screenplay (haven't seen the movie) 12 Feb. 2007
By Fry Boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Peter Morgan shows us how it's done. It's the classic lot-of-white-space screenplay and it works. The whole story is quite interesting whether or not you are obsessed with the British monarchy (I, for one, am not).

The only issues, from a speculation script standpoint, are that:

1) every character name always appears in CAPITALS;

2) the writer uses "a beat" with great frequency (this is supposedly an acting term not applicable to screenwriting [he should use "a pause" instead]);

3) camera direction is used, but the use is limited.

It's the ideal drama that could capture a broad audience or production interest. Little or no profanity; no nudity; no violence; no special effects.

I've read quite a few screenplays and this is one of the better ones. Very readable. Not very technical.

A Queen of a script 22 Jan. 2008
By Ruth Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I feel writing, creating a script based on someone who is still alive would be overwhelming. Yet the talent in this script is something all writers and readers should appreciate. The balance is right. Despite the difficult subject , I feel the writer gets inside the Queen and pardons her for being what she is - just human. Though having said that she does a wonderful job being the queen of england and I don't think any of us could do the job better,
Since reading the script Queen Elizabeth has a new fan! She is a great role model for woman around the world And she has to survive with such pressure. Go Elizabeth!
