DVD: The Young Victoria

DVD_YoungVictoriaAhhh. a rare trip back to some old technology :) – the NON Blu-Ray version of 'The Young Victoria' starring Emily Blunt, Rupert Friend, Paul Bettany, Miranda Richardson and Jim Broadbent. A perfect film for snuggling-up on the sofa on a Sunday afternoon in October!

Written by Julian Fellowes and released in March, 2009, it was a lavish production, with good acting all round. Nice soundtrack too. It was pretty accurate from a historical point of view except for the scene where the Prince 'took a bullet' for the young Queen!
