Oh To Be Ordinary Trailer: A Royal Night Out!


True story: VE Day, 1945 – the allied countries celebrated the victory over the Axis powers, a celebration that included – incognito – Princesses Elizabeth (soon to become Queen Elizabeth II) and Margaret.

Noted Guardian film critic Peter Bradshaw wrote a black comedy of a novel, Night of Triump, about it.

Separately, writers Trevor De Silva and Kevin Hood (Silent Witness, Becoming Jane) wrote a much lighter, warm-hearted screenplay that was turned into a film by director Julian Jarrold (Red Riding: In The Year of Our Lord 1974) with Sarah Gadon (Map to the Stars, Enemy) starring as Elizabeth.

Check out the trailer after the jump. Release dates for the US have not yet been scheduled.
