It's a great film and I ordered it for my nursing class as an example of mental illness. Delivery to the store was fast but when I got it handed to me the case was smashed in half. Luckily the disc had popped out and survived. The customer service lady was nice and offered to return it for me, but being short on time with my class coming up I had to take it \"as is.\" The moral of the story is always check the product in front of an employee before you leave.
I have watched this movie many times on television and once on a DVD thru Netflix. Loved it so much I decided to purchase. The one I received from Walmart was not the same. It was edited so much it took out one of my favorite scenes. I returned it. VERY disappointed!
I am a HUGE fan of historical\/period\/costume dramas; so after viewing the trailer online, I knew this would be something I would be interested in!\nHaving already seen \"Mrs. Brown\" (starring Dame Judi Dench, and Bill Connolly), and \"Victoria & Albert\" (starring Victoria Hamilton, and Jonathan Firth- yes, Colin Firth's brother)- I already knew a little history of H.M. Queen Victoria.\n\nDespite a couple of inaccuracies (such as Albert being shot), I still found the film very enjoyable.\nThis was only the 2nd film I had seen either of the two leads in.\nEmily Blunt in \"The Devil Wears Prada\", and Rupert Friend in \"Pride & Prejudice\" 2005. Being that both of those roles were only supporting characters at best, I guess I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised though, to see both of them shine in their roles (Emily especially)!!\n\nMy only complaint is that it was over too soon! (But since the title is \"The YOUNG Victoria\"- I guess it stands to reason.)\nIf you're interested in learning more, I would recommend viewing the two films I mentioned earlier. The cinematography was beautifully done; the locations, and costumes are breathtaking! Also, it's only got a PG rating!!
