Aro Recommended Young Victoria, The

 

UK 2009, 100 minutes
Dir. Jean-Marc VallĂ©e
Genres: Drama / History, Romance

Topics: Period - 1800s, Biopic.

 

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.

Written by Julian Fellowes (GOSFORD PARK, DOWNTON ABBEY).
