This Victoria is not particularly Victorian, but then she is young; and everyone wants a piece of her, politically speaking. Emily Blunt is lovely and strong-minded as the Young Vic.

This may be the perfect shared entertainment for daughters just growing out of their princess phase and mothers with their own challenges balancing love and work.

Emily Blunt joins the ranks of great screen monarchs.

Talky and stately, but it has a degree of humanization making it far more enjoyable and relatable than others of its kind.

The Young Victoria is an attractive film. While many period pieces overwhelm with flashy production design in order to get attention, the stellar art direction found here is luscious yet never vulgarly so.

Audience Reviews for The Young Victoria

History-lite for the sophomore high school set, albeit done with almost the best that money can buy. Blunt and Friend do as well as the passable script allows conveying the times and political infighting of court life. Only Mark Strong impressed me though as daring to press the limitations of the preset direction.

Victoria led a very controlled and protected life as heir to the throne. Everyone wanted to manipulate her. The movie covers the early years of her reign and her romance with Albert. Good movie and good cast.

Candy Rose

Super Reviewer

Besides the creepy syntax that was Princess Victoria's upbringing, there was a veil over the true politics that brought about the royals reforms later on in their reign. The uproar that was England only came to a stead in accordance with Victoria's life. Of course, this film was far more providential of a love story. The ease with which Blunt and Friend bandied about their emotions, their chemistry, the sovereigns' devotion, was palpable to a deep passion unlike any. Beautiful film.
