THE YOUNG VICTORIA



I saw this beautiful and romantic period film on TV several months ago and, quite obviously, I loved it! 
It takes a look at the year leading up to and first few years of Victoria on the English throne. It shows the struggle and difficulties of being a lonely child growing up in a repressive background at Kensington Palace before becoming the  queen that would have the longest standing reign in all of British history. The film also depicts the life of a married monarch, that is to say the marriage between Victoria and Albert,  a true love story for the ages.
Read here a review of the movie. Here you can see it in Italian.
