Young Victoria

Yesterday, my dear friend, Maggi Anderson, and I went to see the film Young Victoria. We really enjoyed it.

Yes there were a few inaccuracies, but overall a very enjoyable film. The costumes were glorious and there were beautiful settings, wonderful period rooms and scenic gardens, etc.

Maggi and I agreed that the sexual tension was done very well, all with looks, the odd smile, and no need for great big romping sex scenes.
I was a little dubious when I heard Emily Blunt was to play Victoria, but she does a splendid job, so too the other actors, Rupert Friend as Albert and Paul Bettany as Lord Melbourne.
After watching the film, Maggi and went to our favourite cafe, The elephant Boy and had a yummy lunch and talked about books and writing for a couple of hours before we ducked off to the local bookshop!
A very good day!
Thanks Maggi.
