Editor's Note

Emily Blunt (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA) stars as the queen in this story that chronicles her rise to the crown and her romance with Prince Albert. THE YOUNG VICTORIA also stars Oscar winner Jim Broadbent, Mark Strong, Paul Bettany, Miranda Richardson, and Rupert Friend.

Professional Reviews

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his biopic sets out to redress our impressions of Victoria....Blunt makes a fine princess..." 03/01/2009

Box Office
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] beautifully mounted and costumed odyssey....With a script by Julian Fellowes, who won an Oscar for his screenplay for GOSFORD PARK, THE YOUNG VICTORIA positively sizzles with impeccable pedigree." 10/25/2009

Entertainment Weekly
"[T]his is no gilded princess fantasy -- it's the story of a budding ruler who learns to control her surroundings, and Blunt makes that journey at once authentic and relevant." -- Grade: B 12/18/2009

Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "Emily Blunt makes Victoria as irresistible a young woman as Dame Judi Dench made her an older one in MRS. BROWN." 12/11/2009

USA Today
3 stars out of 4 -- "[A]ppealing and well-crafted....The production design and costumes are sumptuous and the ensemble cast is splendid." 12/18/2009

Washington Post
"Lovers of pomp, pageantry and extravagant period detail will find themselves exceedingly well served by THE YOUNG VICTORIA, a visually arresting and sneakily engrossing film..." 12/18/2009

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
Orson Welles allegedly said a movie studio was the best toy train set a child could ever desire. He should have been Queen Victoria. She was crowned in 1837, and ruled until 1901, queen of the greatest empire the world has ever known. She was married to Albert, her great love, from 1840 to 1861, and though she was a widow for the next 40 years, at least unlike many monarchs, she wed the man of her choice...We think of her as the formidable matron of official portraits. She was a girl once. She had teenage crushes. She resented authority. She hated being ordered about. She fell in love with a pen pal, the Victorian equivalent of an online romance. The Young Victoria is about those years...Victoria lives in a hermetically sealed world. She meets no one not vetted by the palace hierarchy, has no meaningful independence, is having her life mapped for reasons of state, not the heart. King Leopold of Belgium (Thomas Kretschmann) hopes to marry her to his son, Albert (Rupert Friend). Albert has no enthusiasm for being used as a pawn, but is drilled in her likes and dislikes, and sent to meet her. Whether deliberately or by misadventure, he reveals he's been coached about her tastes. When she calls him on it, he admits it and begins to win her heart...The Empire magazine reviewer Kim Newman writes, "If you're collecting British royal history by installments in the cinema, you'll know exactly how to place this on a shelf with Elizabeth, Restoration, The Madness of King George and The Queen". Wouldn't that make a great weekend of videos? Yes, The Young Victoria belongs on the same shelf, but at the lower end, I'm afraid. It's a charmer, but it lacks the passion of the others, perhaps because it's so, well, Victorian. - Roger Ebert
