| light weight mixed with some dark situations
It's VE 1945 in London. Princesses Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) and Margaret (Bel Powley) are eager to be out with the people. The King (Rupert Everett) is worried about his speech and reluctantly allows the girls to go out until 1am. To the girls' dismay, the Queen (Emily Watson) assigns them military chaperons and organizes a stuffy party. Margaret sneaks out and Elizabeth is desperate to find her with the help of bitter anti-establishment airman Jack Hodges (Jack Reynor) who is out AWOL.

This movie reminds me of 'Adventures in Babysitting' in both good and bad ways. It's a couple of clueless teens getting into trouble in the big city. It's light weight but mixed with some very dark situations. Margaret is cartoonishly idiotic. Elizabeth's cluelessness is a little more annoying and pompous. While Margaret is fake stupid, Elizabeth's posh attitude is too broad and feels unreal. The romance hits a few speed bumps but it gets to the right places. Sarah Gadon is charismatic but she's a little old to play the teenager future queen. This rom-com works well at times and less so at other times.
