The Young Victoria  [2009]
DirectorJean-Marc Vallée
CastPaul Bettany, Emily Blunt, Rupert Friend, Miranda Richardson
From a script by Academy Award®-winning Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park). The film chronicles Queen Victoria’s ascension to the throne, focusing on the turbulent early years of her reign and her legendary romance and marriage to Prince Albert.
The Young Victoria is set in the period from 1836, the year before Victoria ascended the throne, to 1840, the year she married Prince Albert, and revises the widely held picture of Queen Victoria as an elderly widow dressed in black. In addition to being a love story and family drama, the film explores the idea of instant celebrity – one minute Victoria is living under virtual house arrest, the next she is the most famous woman in the world.
