This week I watched the film The Young Victoria starring Emily Blunt and Rupert Friend as Victoria and Albert. I enjoyed the movie.
I thought that Emily and Rupert were really good in their parts and I think the rest of the cast was top notch as well.
The costumes and look of the film were gorgeous and captivating.
I enjoyed Emily's portrayal of Victoria's strength in standing up to those around her that were trying to bully her. I really enjoyed the relationship between Victoria and Albert. Especially knowing how much she really loved him in real life and how much she mourned him after his passing. They do a good job of showcasing how that strong of a relationship was begun.
I know there are historical inaccuracies that I am not aware of and that every historical movie adds things or changes things for the sake of drama but I do think they went a little over the top in this film with Albert getting shot. As far as I understand it, there was an assassination attempt but Albert was not injured.
Overall, I think if you have any interest in the love story of Victoria and Albert you will find this movie to be enjoyable.
Here is the trailer:
