The Crown

November 12, 2016 at 7:00 PM

I have recently discovered The Crown, an original Netflix series starring a perfectly cast Claire Foy as the newly married Princess Elizabeth. Matt Smith plays the handsome Prince (charming) Philip Mountbatten. Based on factual accounts of Elizabeth’s first five years as queen, this mini-series will enthrall anglophiles and royalty fans. I was hooked from the start. Netflix has reportedly spent $100 million on the lavish sets and locations for the first season and has started filming a second.  I will surely buy this on DVD for the library when it becomes available. Meanwhile, check out our other terrific British royalty films such as The Queen, starring Oscar winner Helen Mirren, or Mrs. Brown, starring Judi Dench as Queen Victoria. --Nancy Maxwell, Audio-visual Librarian and big Royalty watcher whose two children are named Charles and Diana
