I imagine if the movie makers were as high minded as you appear to want them to be and if they didn't touch the lives of any public figure, then the world of motion pictures would be a lot poorer for the lack of some really great films that were based on people's actual lives.
I don't object in general as I see the need of the public for such films and thus they are produced. What I wanted to say is that it's a difference if someone like Camilla has resigned herself to the fact that the film industry sees her life as interesting topic or if - as the quote by Dame Helen Mirren seems to imply - she should be grateful that someone classy like Helen Mirren wants to do this said film. Camilla need not be grateful as surely such a film is against her personal wishes.
