The Young Victoria (2009)
This is one of the better biopics that I've seen recently. I don't know how closely it follows real life, but Victoria and Albert are adorable in this movie! Coincidentally it was written by Julian Fellowes - the same guy who wrote Gosford Park, for which he was nominated for an Oscar. The movie is also beautiful in every way - the costumes, the art direction and the makeup are all flawless. Emily Blunt is very convincing as the young willful queen though her on-again-off-again political relationship with Lord Melbourne is more annoying than plot-advancing.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
