Historical Media: The Young Victoria

Located the trailer for an upcoming movie based on Queen Victoria.  As I endeavor to improve my own knowledge of Victorian era, it seemed as most historical accountings were a bit drab when narrating the name sake for the RL era that Steampunk would take place.

Understandable, there are certain liberties that any screenwriter indulges with in the production of a movie based on historical individuals (as outlined in the Wiki already designed for the movie).  Nonetheless, not only does it appear to provide a generalized sense of the era, but the background for the work looks specular!

The production will have a “limited run” in the states starting December 18th, but was released in the UK back in March, and had a British DVD release in July, so… if it is the first time you are seeing it in the US, do enjoy, or if you have been fortunate enough to have already seen it, please feel free to provide your own thoughts on it!
