The Young Victoria

The Young Victoria [Blu-ray]
An amazingly romantic, beautiful movie.  Emily Blunt, who played the mean co-worker in the Devil Wears Prada, was very charming and serene.  She successfully portrayed a new Victoria, naive but strong and wise.
I had always been wondering what kind of a queen Victoria was, for it was one of the most prosperous time of the English history.  In my school history books, I remember learning many things about the Elizabeth, but not much about Victoria... Most of the descriptions about her era were dedicated to Industrial Evolution and all that had happened during the period, non politically.
Another reason for watching this film is the gorgeous dresses and the interior decoration.  Makes me want to watch it again.
I love this green dress!

i love period movies, the grand settings and elaborate costumes, it is so much more interesting to learn a little about history through films. My history classes always put me to sleep in school. I can't wait to see this movie.

Caryn, I also love looking at the gorgeous costumes in period movies. This one is going to be my absolute favorite in that respect!
