The Madness Of King George
- Directed by: Nicholas Hytner
- Written by: Alan Bennett
- Cast: Nigel Hawthorne, Helen Mirren, Ian Holm, Amanda Donohoe, Rupert Graves, Rupert Everett
Alan Bennett's adaptation of his own stage play is a great British film in its own right with no lingering sense of theatricality. Hawthorne's excellent portrayal of the King, his demented behaviour threatening the stability of the nation, gives the film an emotional core, while the script's themes are intelligently handled throughout.
