Goofs

When the Prince of Wales recovers from typhoid, the Queen commands that a Mass of Thanksgiving be held at St. George's Chapel. Queen Victoria was a devout low-church Anglican/Presbyterian in England and Scotland and would have never ordered a mass. In reality, a Church of England Service of Thanksgiving was held at St. Paul's Cathedral. See more »

A masterful, touching, gentle piece of history
4 May 1999 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

Absolutely brilliant film. No question, we all seem to agree that Dench deserved the Oscar (ok, Hunt was cute in AGAIG but a long way from 'Best'), Connolly is surprisingly good in this very dramatic role (I'm not exactly a huge fan of his comedic work), and Sher was very clever as Disraeli. All in all, a sterling performance by a wonderful cast. But this movie is just a little bit more that just great acting, it is also a moving story of the burdens of office, the mores of Victorian society, the anguish of the death of a loved one, and the blessing of true friendship. This is a very good movie. Don't expect sex, violence or swearing, but if you're looking for a quality film, this could be for you. 8/10
