Box set featuring four critically acclaimed movies from 2006. 

'The Queen' (2006) is Stephen Frears' portrait of the English Monarch in time of strife. One of the most turbulent times in British politics in recent memory seen from an insider's perspective - an almost documentary look at the relationship between the figurehead and the brains behind the UK. It's 1997 and Tony Blair's Labour Government has just won an election, ending 18 years of Conservative rule. Blair the firebrand (Michael Sheen) must introduce himself to the Queen (Helen Mirren) and ask permission to govern the country. The stone-faced Regina, in accepting, gives him not a millimeter of slack, silently underscoring the fact she's in charge. Shortly thereafter, the former Princess of Wales, wife of Elizabeth's son and heir, is killed in Paris. The Queen's initial reaction is to hold ranks and treat Diana as an outsider, being that she has left the royal household. Blair senses the coming landslide of public opinion against this course of action and tries, as hard as a new boy can, to make her majesty see sense. The question of who's truly in charge comes to the fore. 

'The Devil Wears Prada' (2006) is a comedy based on the novel by Lauren Weisberger. Andrea (Anne Hathaway) is a bright young woman from the Midwest who has just graduated from college and wants to work as a magazine writer. She has applied for a job at 'Runway', America's most prestigious fashion journal. Andy has little interest in the garment trade, but it is one of the only magazines in New York with a job opening - second assistant to editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep). As Andy quickly learns, Miranda is a diva with plenty of power within the magazine business and she isn't afraid to use it, and though Andy lands the job, she soon learns that working for Miranda could test the patience of a saint thanks to her endless demands and refusal to acknowledge the end of a work day. Andy struggles to hold on to the job and her sanity, knowing that a recommendation from Miranda can open nearly any door at any magazine - but can she handle the pressure without losing her mind along the way? 

'The Last King of Scotland' (2006) is an Oscar-winning drama starring Forest Whitaker. When a naive young Scottish doctor, Nicholas Garrigan (James McAvoy), arrives in 1970s Uganda hoping for fun, sun and to lend a helping hand, he finds himself instead on a shocking ride into the darkest realm on earth. Befriended by the charismatic new leader, Idi Amin (Whitaker), and appointed as his personal physician, Nicholas is originally blinded by his larger-than-life and charming persona. But when the terrible truth of his despotic rule is revealed, he must fight for both his life and soul against one of the cruelest leaders in history. 

'Little Miss Sunshine' (2006) is a heartwarming comedy following a dysfunctional family on a frantic road trip across the US in a decrepit Volkswagen van to deliver their youngest to a child beauty pageant on time. Olive Hoover (Abigail Breslin) is an ordinary little girl, perhaps even on the plain side as far as looks go but she has a dream cast in stone - to win the Little Miss Sunshine child beauty pageant. Her heroin-snorting grandfather (Alan Arkin) coaches her in some rather unorthodox and grown-up techniques - when he's not on the nod. Her mum (Toni Collette) and dad (Greg Kinnear) are at each other's throat because dad has sunk their entire worth into a self-help business that's a total non-starter. Her philosophically-constipated older brother (Paul Dano) has taken a vow of nihilistic silence and her suicidal gay uncle (Steve Carell) has come to stay for a while after yet another failed attempt to cash out early. Has Olive got a chance? No, she hasn't, but it's the journey that matters, not the destination - ultimately the message of this touching comedy.
