For the past six decades, Helen Mirren's career has successfully shifted from a respected theatre actress to an iconic fixture on British television to a beloved Hollywood star. Her celebrated range of work has earned her the triple crown of acting - an Academy Award for The Queen, a Tony for The Audience, numerous Emmys, including for her iconic performance in Prime Suspect - and, since 2003, an appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Now in its fifth year online, The Helen Mirren Archives chronicles Miss Mirren's life and career from the early days to the recent with information, pictures and videos. Enjoy your stay, and check back soon.

“The Leisure Seeker” has been released on Blu-Ray earlier this month in Germany and various European countries. I’d recommend it to everyone who enjoys seeing two acting greats – or a film that takes its time to tell a story. While it was running a bit long with 2 hours and its pace is off-putting at times, this is a charming, sometimes funny and otherwise deeply moving story. While it might be missing the brilliant magic of “The Straight Story” or the wit of “Little Miss Sunshine”, “The Leisure Seeker” has its heart at the right place, and a truly outstanding acting duo in Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren, whose Golden Globe nomination for the role was fully deserved. Over 1.500 screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery. Please be aware they might contain spoilers.
