Queen Victoria is deeply depressed after the death of her husband, disappearing from public. Her servant Brown, 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.Written by
In 1864, the Prince of Wales says he has a new son, Albert Victor, called Eddy. In real life, the future King Edward VII's first son, with the same name, was born that year. The young prince was a scandalous party animal who was reportedly mixed up with the "Jack the Ripper" crowd. In 1890, his grandmother, Queen Victoria, gave him the title Duke of Clarence. In 1892, Eddy, who had just turned 28, died of influenza. His younger brother took his place in the royal succession, eventually becoming King George V. See more »
In the film, Sir Henry Ponsonby is the Queen's Private Secretary before 1866. Ponsonby became Queen Victoria's Private Secretary after the death of Sir Charles Grey, the preceding Private Secretary to the Sovereign, on March 31, 1870. See more »
Mrs Brown is an enthralling piece of work wonderfully crafted by Judy Dench and Billy Connolly. The story is about queen Victoria and the relationship with Mr Brown after the death of her husband. Connolly is superb and maybe should think about sticking to straight acting more often instead of comedy. Although the film tends to tail of a little in the last half hour it is still worth seeing. 7 out of 10
