Don't you love watching movies? When you stumble on a really great movie, you can be transported away from your everyday life to a completely different time and place.
You can find yourself suddenly wrapped up in another person's life, one that's completely different from your own. For instance, wouldn't it be fun to be a king or a princess, or a high-powered executive?
These two movies and a fantastic miniseries that you probably haven't seen yet, include two tales about real people that Kim Komando enjoyed watching with her family, and thought you might, too.
So, are you ready to escape the everyday for a little while? If so, check out these wonderful titles that are streaming right now.
1. A Royal Night Out

Overview: Starring Emily Watson, Rupert Everett, Sarah Gordon; from Lionsgate
Do you remember the "The King's Speech," the 2011 Academy Award best picture winner starring Colin Firth? (See below.) In the movie, Firth plays England's King George VI, who overcame a debilitating speech impediment to rally his country in its World War II efforts to bring down Adolf Hitler.
It is a truly great movie, and story. A newer movie, "A Royal Night Out," imagines King George's teenage daughters, the current Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Margaret Windsor, as they celebrated the end of WWII with the rest of England.
In real life, the teenagers escaped the royal palace that night in 1945 to experience the euphoria with the regular folks of London. That included dancing at the Ritz.
"A Royal Night Out" is a lighthearted and fun account of what that night may have been like for the young royals. Note: Kim Komando and her family watched "A Royal Night Out" and thoroughly enjoyed it. Kim thought you might, too.
