The highly anticipated romantic comedy "Red, White and Royal Blue," adapted from Casey McQuiston's bestselling novel, has finally made its debut. The movie is now available on Prime Video, starting August 11th.
Much like its source material, the film revolves around Alex Claremont-Diaz, the Mexican American son of the U.S. president, and Prince Henry, his royal counterpart. The story takes off when these two political rivals, who have a history of feuding, find themselves in a public altercation captured by the tabloids. To control the fallout, their advisors orchestrate a plan to present a fake truce. However, this facade of friendship gradually transforms into a clandestine romance, posing a potential threat to Alex's mother's bid for re-election.
The film's trailer, released in July, provides a sneak peek at Taylor Zakhar Perez's portrayal of Alex, Nicholas Galitzine as Britain's Prince Henry, and Uma Thurman as the U.S. president, complete with a distinctive Southern accent. The adaptation also boasts a talented ensemble cast including Stephen Fry, Sarah Shahi, Ellie Bamber, Clifton Collins Jr., Rachel Hilson, and Thomas Flynn.
Variety film critic Peter DeBruge, in his review, describes the movie as "a lively gay rom-com that might seem like a frivolous delight if not for the historical significance of its very existence."
