Visually delicious, dripping in both diamonds and details, The Young Victoria is a fresh approach to both its subject and its genre.

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.

Quite a bit dry, even for a historical drama.

Blunt's performance, restrained and fiery, holds together the personal and the political threads of this handsomely mounted drama.

A veddy proper film that wouldn't presume to misbehave with an ounce of unnecessary melodrama and abandon. We are amused and entertained but not terribly so.

Es el típico producto de calidad que se aprecia más que nada por sus valores de producción (y aquí son realmente excepcionales) y por un elenco, en este caso británico, donde se luce especialmente la estupenda Emily Blunt.

Rich in personal drama, political intrigue and royal pageantry but also satisfyingly compact.

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 is Blunt's chance to follow in the footsteps of Gwenyth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley in becoming a leading lady in a period piece.

A passable depiction of what looks to be a rather unspectacular slice of history.

...worth seeing for Emily Blunt's radiant performance as Victoria and for the eye-popping recreations of life and ritual at the English court.

A full package period romance, from the performances to the costumes to the lush setting and the rich score.

If Molly Ringwold had taken a shot at 'respectability' in a Merchant Ivory Oscar-bait film, this might have been the perfect screenplay.

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.
