Queen Victoria (Dame Judi Dench) is deeply depressed after the death of her husband, disappearing from public. Her servant Mr. John Brown (Sir Billy Connolly), who adores her, through caress and admiration brings her back to life, but that relationship creates scandalous situation and is likely to lead to monarchy crisis.
This is one of two movies in consecutive years in which Judi Dench played a historic English Queen. She played Elizabeth I in Shakespeare in Love (1998). The same actresses played the Queen's Ladies in Waiting in both movies. See more »
At Osborne House, Brown is standing on the upper terrace, below the second story grand hall windows, with the Queen's white pony, ready and waiting for the Queen's call to ride. From the upper terrace level, he is standing on the horse's right. As the Queen walks through the grand hall with her daughters, she notices Brown standing and waiting through the window, and pauses at the window to observe more closely. Now Brown is standing on the horse's left, which appears closer to the window because of the angle of the shot. See more »
Mrs Brown is a good movie with a good storyline ,excellent performances by Bill Conolly ,Judi Dench and Antony Sher. Antony Sher(Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli)adds some humor to the the movie .It was a delight visiting the beautiful Scottish Highlands thanks to some marvelous photography and a very good recreation of the Victorian age. The real show stealer I felt was Bill Conolly(John Brown).He is portrayed as a loyal,charismatic,fun loving Scottish highlander who can dare to defy the Queen's orders .The scenes involving Victoria and Brown are electrifying.It surprises me that a talented actor like Bill Connoly Does not get many good roles.I would definitely love to see more of this talented actor.
