The Young Victoria

This is literally one of my favorite movies that I have seen in a long time. Go see it, please, and then tell me that you loved it too. I actually watched this with two boys and both of them said that it was way better than they thought it would be. This isn't your typical chick flick. Definitely not, it actually goes into some of the politics of her young reign. man, she reigned for so long. Since she was 18 until she died I think it said at 81, like 40 years after her husband had died. Poor girl.

I actually wanted to see this when it came to town at the local independent theatre, but no one wanted to see it with me. I was glad when my dad rented it and said that he had loved it.

Seriously, this movie isn't super chick flicky, but Prince Albert seriously can rival Darcy. No Joke.

because honestly, she had to choose Albery over Melbourne, he had a way more awesome hairdo.

Do you want to know what's funny? When I was looking up the people in this movie I realized that the guy who played Prince Albert is actually in the last movie post I did. He played a nazi in the boy in the striped pajamas. Odd. 

I stayed up really late last night to watch this movie again. you should do the same. You'll thank me for it.

P.s. There is a giveaway going on over at the Boob Nazi's blog for a pair of tickets to my dad's play for the provo show. Go Enter!! It's open until tomorrow night.
