THE YOUNG VICTORIA (2009 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

The Young Victoria—priceless—doesn’t play down the difficulties of ruling and good leadership. It’s a marvelous ode to the necessity of strength of character, knowledge, political finesse, and able/honest advisors. While the acting sometimes seems a bit bland and weak, the film overall makes a good entertainment piece.

Storyline

Young Victoria (Emily Blunt) finds herself at odds with her mother, her mother’s chief advisor, the populace at large and finds comfort and friendship with Prince Albert (Rupert Friend).
