Aroview: Emily Blunt radiates in this elegant if corseted biopic of Queen Victoria's early years as she deals with royal power struggles while being wooed by her cousin, Prince Albert (Friend).
Doesn't present any significant new insights into a figure of such high mystique, and the film becomes a near-gushing tribute in the third act, but the historical eye-candy is to die for, and with the right young woman in the role, this is sure to appeal to a wealth of loyal subjects.

3 stars (Good Enough) Emily Blunt is a good casting choice but it is Jim Broadbent who takes the acting honours albeit for a too short screen appearance. The production values all round are excellent and to its credit, the screen time is not overlong for this kind of thing.~tubbs
