Screening of 1994 film, The Madness of King George as part of the Royal Cinema, Senior Film Series. King George III (Nigel Hawthorne) of England is exhibiting signs of madness, a problem little understood in 1788. As the monarch alternates between bouts of confusion and near-violent outbursts of temper, his hapless doctors attempt the ineffectual cures of the day. Meanwhile, Queen Charlotte (Helen Mirren) and Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger (Julian Wadham) attempt to prevent the king’s political enemies, led by the Prince of Wales (Rupert Everett), from usurping the throne. 2:00 PM in airconditioned Otto Fehlow Room.
