About the Film
This is a delicate and romantic look at England’s last golden age. Emily Blunt stars as the queen who went on to symbolize the entire British empire. The film follows Victoria’s early struggle to succeed her uncle as the ruler of England. It provides an insightful portrait of the often ruthless machinations that characterized the dealings between royal family members, a world where matters of the heart took a backseat to patriotism and loyalty. The exquisite cast includes Rupert Friend, Paul Bettany, Miranda Richardson and Jim Broadbent.
A perfect historical romance. – Us Weekly
