| Awfully good...but also very episodic...
This is a tremendously well made film that fans of movies about the royalty should love. Unfortunately, while very good, it also comes off as a bit episodic because the film tries to cover too much material and would have been better off with either a narrow focus or a series.

The film begins at the beginning of Queen Victoria's reign in 1837. Very shortly after this, she marries Prince Albert and the film specifically focuses on their relationship. In many ways, it's like the recent film "Young Victoria" though it places a greater emphasis between her relationship with her husband and covers a much longer period. Both films are terrific and would make a great double-feature. Heck, if you have a chance, also see "Mrs. Brown"--making it a terrific triple-Victoria viewing experience.

So what did I like about it? Well, Anna Neagle (Victoria) and Anton Wallbrook (Albert) did terrific jobs and their interplay was very nice. Additionally, the direction and quality of the production were superb. It also helped that the film makers got permission to use many of the royal residences in the movie--so they really got the look down right. All in all a very good film that tries to encompass a bit too much of for a film that is this short. You'd think you'd need at least three hours to do the topic justice since she lived so long and so much happened in Great Britain during her reign.
