The Crown is Netflix’s Game of Thrones. They really did an amazing job on every element of this show from casting, editing, writing to music and directing.
The show tells us the early years of Queen Elizabeth II of United Kingdom. It shows starting years of Queen’s married life and her struggle to manage her duties as a Queen and as a wife. The First Season covers the time period from 1947 to 1955. It’s also covers the more personal life of Queen then her public life. It’s really shows you an inside depth of Queen Elizabeth’s psyche.
The show’s cast includes of great actors and actress from the theater. Every member of the cast gave a remarkable performance. Instead of looking alike, they focus more on to capture the psyche of their Real life Characters.
Claire Foy gave an extraordinary performance. Her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II is her best acting so far. She really dwells herself into the character and captured the real essence of Queen Elizabeth II. And it’s no doubt that she earn Golden Globe Best Actress – Television Series Drama for her stunning performance.
Also, I would like to give a special mention to John Lithgow. His portrayal of Winston Churchill is remarkably amazing. It’s the first time I saw the fragile psyche of Winston Churchill. And John received many nominations for his remarkable portrayal.
The Crown Soundtrack – Duck Shoot (Rupert Gregson Williams):
The Soundtrack of the Show is given by Hanz Zimmer and Rupert Gregson Williams. Hanz’s Theme music is absolutely stunning. Its sets a perfect tone for the series. I like to give a special mention to Rupert’s Soundtrack. His score really gives a chill when it plays in certain important scenes. His Score is one of the major reasons that some of the important scenes look amazing.
Should you Watch it??
I would say Absolutely. You will love this show. My ratings for the First Season is 4 out of 5. It has a strong character and it shows the personal life of Queen Elizabeth II. Now Netflix got their own Game of Thrones.
