Two Movies

This past week I had the chance to cash in my gift cards and catch a couple movies, and though very different both were good films.
They both were released sometime ago, but just made it to my local movie house. "Pan's Labyrinth" is set in post WWII fascist Spain and tells the tale of a young girl who escapes her harsh reality into a sometimes equally frightening realm of fantasy.
"The Queen" is a look behind the walls of Buckingham Palace during the week just after the sudden death of Diana, former Princess of Wales. It's an interesting peak at the life of Queen Elizabeth, a life of procedure, tradition and isolation.
