This movie is based on a play byAlan Bennettcalled The Madness of George III. An urban legend formed that the title was changed to prevent non-British audiences from mistaking it for a sequel to two other movies about The Madness of George.Nicholas Hytnerclarified, that in the UK it would be obvious that George III was a King, but elsewhere this might not be so clear, hence the name change. (This does not rule out the sequel theory, as the numeral III was not mentioned by Hytner.)See more

Aging King George III of England is exhibiting signs of madness, a problem little understood in 1788. As the monarch alternates between bouts of confusion and near-violent outbursts of temper, his hapless doctors attempt the ineffectual cures of the day. Meanwhile, Queen Charlotte and Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger attempt to prevent the kings political enemies, led by the Prince of Wales, from usurping the throne.Written byJwelch5742

When King George III goes mad, his lieutenants try to adjust the rules to run the country without his participation.
Watched this again yesterday & once more was enraged at the injustice of Nigel Hawthorne missing out on the Oscar to Tom Hanks Forrest Gump that year.An absolutely masterful performance from Hawthorne, matched by Ian Holms doctor. The scene where the two of them meet for the first time is one of my favourites of all I have ever seen & always moves me.The film never takes itself too seriously, and the cast is a veritable whos who of great British actors that Hollywood largely ignored. If you havent seen this film, then Id urge you to do so. Not many of you will fail to be impressed…….
