The Madness Of King George

4

A near-perfect stage-to-screen adaptation (even if they did drop the III off the title to avoid confusing Yank audiences), Nicholas Hytner's royal biopic makes great drama. Alan Bennett's screenplay is deliciously witty and surprisingly historically accurate, Nigel Hawthorne delivers an extraordinary lead performance and there's faultless support from the likes of Helen Mirren, Ian Holm, Rupert Everett, Rupert Graves and Geoffrey Palmer.
