A highly resonant testament to the redemptive power of love--one that transcends traditional romantic definitions.

Centering on a lesser-known chapter in the reign of Queen Victoria, this richly detailed drama about her intimate relationship with her servant that scandalized the country is extremely well-acted; Judi Dench deserves an Oscar nomination

Dench is magnificent as Victoria, a toy-sized, black-suited, dough girl of despair, a woman slowly recovering her wits and her expectations.

Dench's Victoria has a full palette of pent-up emotions bubbling inside her like a pressure-cooker; one can feel the power of her anguish...

The political nuances of Mrs. Brown may be obscure to most Americans, but you need no expertise in British history to appreciate Ms. Dench's honesty or Mr. Connolly's ferocity,or Anthony Sher's sly turn as the sharp-witted Disraeli.
