Movie Review: The Young Victoria
Doug was off golfing with old pals all day, so after I finished my to-do list this afternoon, I grabbed some crochet work and popped in The Young Victoria. After I finished watching, I truly could have started it over and watched again, and may do so yet tonight. It is the beautiful love story of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert -- filmed in the fashion of a Jane Austen story (in fact, you would know the actor who plays Prince Albert as the man who played the evil Mr. Wickham in the most recent version of Pride and Prejudice).
Though much of the movie is historical in nature (and I have no idea if it is accurate), I didn't try to grasp too many of the details regarding the line of succession to the throne, instead focusing on the beauty of their romance and marriage.
