The Young Victoria

Directed by: Jean-Marc Vallée

Cast: Emily Blunt, Rupert Friend, Paul Bettany, Miranda Richardson, Jim Broadbent

Running Time: 1 hr 59 mins

Rating: PG

Release Date: December 25, 2009

Plot: A young girl (Blunt) is caught between two ruling uncles, the King of England and the King of Belgium. Destined to be Queen, the regency order is there to keep her out of power until it’s decided she isn’t too young anymore.

Who’S It For? Period piece. Did you just get excited? This early 1800’s film is a powerful piece of historical drama that I was unaware of, and it should please those who are still too excited by the mention of “period piece.”

Overall

Victoria, as a young child, is never given a reason for her isolation. So you can see how how she could be socially stunted. This is a soap opera of Kings, Queens »
