The Madness of King George

Delicate, funny, poignant and ultimately satisfying film stars Nigel Hawthorne as the occasionally demented but otherwise brilliant monarch who is credited for losing the "colonies" (The United States.) The film is a bit hard to watch. King George's treatment was not subtle and his condition not easy to watch. However, the film is certainly worth watching even if only for the tender and almost teenage love story between the King and his doting wife (Helen Mirren) who address each other lovingly as Mr. King and Mrs. King.
