VERDICT – 2/5
1) High production value as required in any period movie.
2) Paul Bettany played the meaty role of Lord Melbourne.
1) An unsought average movie chronicling the uneventful life of young Victoria. Apart from the Bedchamber crisis, and the assassination attempt the movie got no compelling plot points.
2) The supposedly prime villain (Mark Strong as Sir John Conroy) is a feeble character.
Queen Adelaide: You are confusing stubbornness with strength, my dear.
