Young Victoria was amazing!

What a wonderful true story of Queen Victoria. I borrowed from the library then wound up purchasing a copy and watched it over and over. Great for teens.I like to watch movies like this with my iPad in hand to ask questions like what is a regency etc.. Things not common in the USA .

I loved it!

Really good movie with gorgeous scenery and Cinematography! Even though its a period drama it also has a powerful love story behind it as well which has universal themes to it such as "sacrifice" and "honor." I think most people would enjoy it but younger children and adults may not be into all the politics. No sex, no profanity, and a lot of courage!
