  • If you like this sort of movie - and actually, cards on the table, I like this kind of movie - you will not be sorry you saw it. But you will not come away from the experience feeling that you've seen Victoria, young or otherwise. show more

  • Once you get past the fact that lovely Emily Blunt doesn't look anything like the dour historical pictures of Britain's longest-reigning monarch, The Young Victoria is an appealing and well-crafted, if staid, portrait of a fascinating ruler. show more

  • If the film itself isn't brilliant, its star most definitely is. show more

    TOTALLY ABSORBING, ACTORS EXCELLENT, AND AS A BONUS SOME INSIGHT INTO EUROPE, ITS RULERS, PRE-THE GREAT WAR. A FILM ONE CAN VIEW REPEATEDLY TO UNDERSTAND THE INTIMATE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN PERSONAL AND NATIONAL RELATIONSHIPS IN AN AGING CONTINENT

    Okay, I know a few of these reviews aren't good, and I suppose I can see someone unfamiliar with the history of the time period and political intrigues being a little like "what's going on?" The purpose of this movie is explicitly the developing love between Victoria and Albert. It is not meant to be a full history lesson. With that said... I LOVED IT! I am a history major, and had read plenty about Victoria and Albert, and all the political intrigues ranging from relations to other Royals to the troubles in British-Victorian India. As a history major I am well aware that there were slight poetic licenses taken, but the movie was true to the heart of the reality! There was great acting, and the film really delivered!!
