Helen's film The Queen opened the festival. Before the screening she was very cordial to Doug but after she was just full of compliments on his performance. She said "you were amazing, I just loved it. The way you move, you are an amazing actor." This from Helen Mirren! She will surely get the Academy Award this year for The Queen and she was totally doting on Dougie! It was really too cool. Dougie just didn't know what to say.
