"The Young Victoria" is Remarkable



At last another all-around-great film! I completely agree with the above assessment. A healthy perspective of young love and early marriage with unbelievable costumes; the scenes in this movie captured me speechless and riveted to the screen. So did the soundtrack.


Emily Blunt-- whom you'd likely remember as the saucy "you don't deserve this, you eat carbs!" girl from
DevilWearsPrada, plays Victoria. Oooh! And! My favorite fashion decade (1835-45) finally has a movie with costumes worthy for showcase! ...Recognize Prince Albert, anyone?

See the Trailer.

Sense & Sensibility has competition! Hereafter I will watch THIS when I want more romance in life.

MOM. I'm not kidding when I say UNBELIEVABLE COSTUMES. I can't even pick a favorite! She never wears the same dress twice, and they're all so elaborately made.
