The Young Victoria
Before he created Downton Abbey, Julian Fellows wrote a movie called THE YOUNG VICTORIA which starred Emily Blunt and Rupert Friend and was directed by Jean-Marc Vallee. THE YOUNG VICTORIA is our next Rialto Recommends. On the eve of her 18th birthday and succession to the English throne, young Princess Victoria is caught in a royal power struggle. But, it is her blossoming relationship with Prince Albert that will determine the strength of her reign. Can she dedicate her life to her country and her heart to the one man she truly loves? Discover the passion and the romance behind one of history's greatest love stories. The Washington Post said "THE YOUNG VICTORIA may impart copious amounts of detail about its fascinating protagonists, but it's not a mere tutorial: It's a heady, thoroughly transporting plunge." While the LA Times raved "What filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée has done in this delicious historical romance is capture that hot blush of pure emotion that comes before kisses, sex, heartbreak and the rest can dilute it." And Roger Ebert observed "Emily Blunt makes Victoria as irresistible a young woman as Dame Judi Dench made her an older one in Mrs. Brown." THE YOUNG VICTORIA is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, Vudu, GooglePlay, YouTube, Apple and others HERE.
