Elizabeth at 90: A Family Tribute—
refreshingly human—provides an informal look at the monarchy through never before released, privately held home videos. The monarchy humbly descends to earth by means of Prince Charles’ excellent and thorough narration. The tribute shows professionalism and taste while delivering an excellent and loving tribute that honors the Queen’s age and the fact that she maintains the longest running monarchy in Great Britain’s history. Congratulations for a perceptive documentary that can only be described as well done.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s a beautiful look at the monarchy that emphasizes a life not dissimilar to lives of any British citizen. It clearly shows that happiness comes from good marriages, long lasting friends, and stable relationships within family. The movie works more on the level of educational rather than entertainment.
