Truth and fiction in the TV series "Crown" Automatic translate
The Netflix film studio never ceases to amaze people with its magnificent films that attract the attention of viewers not only of their native state, but of the planet as a whole. The creators of the legendary series "Crown" had three difficult tasks: to attract professional actors to the filming, to write a good script and not to sell too cheap (do not spare money for production). And we must admit that they succeeded unquestioningly.
A little about the plot of the series Crown
If you watch the online Crown series , you can find out all the details of the life and reign of the great English queen Elizabeth II. The first two chapters tell about the events taking place in the 50-60s, when a young girl took the place on the throne, who began to rule a powerful empire.
It is worth noting that each episode is a new story of the life of the royal family and their inner circle and can be considered as a short film. But we will not recommend selectively watching the episodes, because they are united by a common theme - Elizabeth’s relationship with her husband and the royal duty that she must fulfill, even if her heart tells otherwise. The woman had to overcome many obstacles, solve a bunch of problems and, despite the intrigues and intrigues of ill-wishers, not only keep the family, but also hold out on the throne until our time.
1947 year. Twenty-year-old British princess Elizabeth is preparing to become the wife of Danish Prince Philip. Looking at the happy and beautiful couple, no one doubted that they would live happily and for a long time. However, King George VI is not particularly distinguished by his health and soon passes the crown to his daughter. The silent beauty, ridiculed by numerous relatives, suddenly becomes the first lady and the young beauty will have to prove to everyone that she is capable of being a wise and purposeful monarch.
A new era has begun and the current queen needs to learn to cope with the changes in the world, while not forgetting about her own family and monarchy.
The plot covers the 1960s-1970s, when the royal family has to endure betrayal, settle serious conflicts, not forgetting to preserve traditions in a rapidly changing world.
Main characters and roles
The role of the great queen went to British actress Claire Foy, who played Elizabeth in her youth. Many believe that she did an excellent job of the role, as evidenced by the received Golden Globes and Emmy. But, in truth, a beautiful lady with big eyes and a pretty face did not finish the role of a great ruler a little, as Cate Blanchett did it in The Golden Age and Elizabeth.
Seasoned British actor Matt Smith played the role of Prince Philip Magnificent. His modest character did without awards, although he had to work no less than others, because the man managed to show an ambiguous hero (due to the difficult character of the prince). Note that he appeared in the frame rarely enough to attract attention and achieve the love of the audience.
Truth and fiction
After seeing the show, the Queen called it too dramatized. Note that The Queen is not a documentary project. Therefore, the directors and screenwriters have embellished the plot a little in order to interest the audience more. Sometimes in history there are completely unknown personalities who did not exist in reality. Between the queen and the prince, there were never any public altercations; they were used to discussing personal problems in the White House without witnesses. Perhaps the behavior and personality of some of the characters is not true. For example, the film speaks unflatteringly about Edward VIII, where it is shown that a man speaks badly of his own family behind their backs. But we will not be able to find out the truth, one has only to guess.
In general, the film is not bad: the expensive costumes, traditions and culture of Great Britain, as well as the fate of Elizabeth II herself, attracts attention with the ease and predictability of the plot.
