The Crown focuses on Queen Elizabeth II as a 25-year-old newlywed faced with the daunting prospect of leading the world’s most famous monarchy while forging a relationship with legendary Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. The British Empire is in decline, the political world is in disarray, and a young woman takes the throne…. a new era is dawning. Peter Morgan’s masterfully researched scripts reveal the Queen’s private journey behind the public facade with daring frankness. Prepare to be welcomed into the coveted world of power and privilege and behind locked doors in Westminster and Buckingham Palace…. the leaders of an empire await. Written by Netflix
The cast was amazing, the script was brilliantly written and it’s quite historically accurate. Netflix did a fantastic job, they have captured each of the characters beautifully and very convincing. In the short 10 episodes we see Claire Foy’s soft, beautiful and expressive face transforms into one of authority once she sits on that throne and becomes Queen. Matt Smith does impressive work on Prince Philip and John Lithgow crushed it as Winston Churchill. I cannot wait till the next season comes out. I hear that it’s in the middle of filming now so fingers crossed that it comes out soon. Come tell me your thoughts.
