The Young Victoria (2009)
Writer: Julian Fellowes
Starring: Emily Blunt, Rupert Friend, Paul Bettany
a small section of queen victoria's life when she was younger. slightly before she was queen, and slightly after her coronation.
good, but not great. the costumes were amazing, and the directing was really good. (i find it amusing it was directed by a frenchman considering the love affair between england and france) but i feel once it found itself, it ended. once prince albert and queen victoria's wedded bliss was over, just when they started having issues with the proper roles between man and wife and queen and country...the end. when i watch movies of england in the mid to late 1800's i always think of eddie izzard's bit about english drawing room drama. the subtlety in the acting and the extreme drama, drama, drama, right under the surface. that is exactly what this was. and i enjoyed it in this representation, but i wish there was just a little more of the story. some of the in-betweens, if that makes any sense.
