The Madness of King George ()

Probable Score
Not Enough Info
Your Rating

A meditation on power and the metaphor of the body of state, based on the real episode of dementia experienced by George III [now suspected a victim of porphyria, a blood disorder]. As he loses his senses, he becomes both more alive and more politically marginalized; neither effect desirable to his lieutenants, who jimmy the rules to avoid a challenge to regal authority, raising the question of who is really in charge.

Reminded me somewhat of The King's Speech. Great performances and writing, but not a particularly intriguing story.

Though it predates THE KING'S SPEECH by 15 years, the similarities are clear: both tell of a King's struggle--George III vs. George VI--to overcome a debilitating condition with the help of a tough but sympathetic specialist. The focus here is spread a bit thin and some of the supporting cast are given short shrift, but Nigel Hawthorne is a wonderful George, convincingly unhinged without slipping into ham or losing our sympathy. The Oscar-winning sets and lavish costumes hold up the visual end.

Hawthorne is just about perfect, Holm and Mirren are superb, in spots it's genuinely very funny, and some of the cinematography is beautiful (some really neat tracking shots). But it has too many characters for its own good, lacks focus, can't really settle on a tone, and in general all these things make for a very superficial movie that never really lets us into what's going on. A respectable but cautious and unremarkable film, saved from tedium and irrelevance by a great lead performance.

a really good period piece, extremely entertaining and well written. hawthorne does a great job in the lead roll. the insanity of george III is an excellent topic for a movie.

Amusing opening and genuinely tense (will he/won't he hold it) finale bookend what is unfortunately a rather unremarkable period piece. Watchable but only just, and much of that is down to Hawthorne's performance, what-what.

While the acting is certainly adequate, especially on Hawthrone's part, however the movie is relatively unfocused in many parts and it has way too many characters for its own good. For a good deal of the time I felt that they didn't really know how to set the tone properly and I never really felt the mental disorder that King George was going through was anything totally intriguing or necessary to solve when just throwing the heir to replace him would have solved the issue.

What what, hey hey. It's a good film, though maybe it has a bit too much comedy to have the dramatic parts truly horrify.
