Old and new, continuing from older posts on art and politics, Uju Anya and Chomsky,  aristocrats and nouveau riche, comedians, the Queen...
and The Queen. [the scene's not deleted]

Frears: I don’t think the film has anything to do with conventional questions about monarchy.
Slate: You don’t think The Queen has anything to do with monarchy?
Frears: No.
Slate: OK. Let’s say this then—much of the film explores the contrasts between old styles of reticence and the new emotionalism of therapeutic cultures—
Frears: Yes. It’s about tradition and change.
Charlie Rose: Are you a monarchist?
Frears: I'm a Queenist.
