A ROYAL NIGHT OUT (2015)

On V.E. Day in 1945, as peace extends across Europe, Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret are allowed out to join the celebrations. It is a night full of excitement, danger and the first flutters of romance. -- IMDB

A very enjoyable piece of fictional history. Princess Margaret and Elizabeth did go out on the town on VE day. But what they did has never been made public. This is a speculative account of what they might have got up to! Sarah Gadon (Dracula Untold) and Bel Powley do a great job of the two princess who desperately want freedom but whose personalities influence how they manage it. The story is witty and moves along at a good pace. The movie has all the hallmarks of a British period drama and is done well.
