Description

Storyline

Queen Victoria (Dame Judi Dench) is deeply depressed after the death of her husband, disappearing from the public. Her servant Mr. John Brown (Sir Billy Connolly), who adores her, through caress and admiration brings her back to life, but that relationship creates scandalous situations and is likely to lead to a monarchy crisis.

Fantastic love story

This film is a fantastic love story. You’ll note that I didn’t say “sex story,” because there is absolutely no sex in this film. And yet most people equate “love story” with sex, or at least a beautifully shot kiss at the end, complete with a cheesy song penned by Brian Adams. This, my friends, is a love story with a difference.

It is the story of a servant’s love for his queen; it is the story of a woman’s love for the man who has given her life meaning; it is a story of two best friends, who ignore social circumstances and care deeply for one another. The story is nearly flawless, combining the historical situation and circumstances with intense and riveting emotion.

The acting is outstanding. Both of the central actors convey exactly what their character is feeling, even if no words are spoken. Billy Connolly lets John Brown’s humanity shine through his rough exterior, and he has a naturalness that is quite inspired. And Dame Judi Dench gives a masterful performance, worthy of the Oscar (like that’s never been said before). Her portrayal of a queen tortured by her feelings and her position in society is the best of the year by any actor, male or female.

A masterful, touching, gentle piece of history
 
Absolutely brilliant film. No question, we all seem to agree that Dench deserved the Oscar (ok, Hunt was cute in AGAIG but a long way from ‘Best’), Connolly is surprisingly good in this very dramatic role (I’m not exactly a huge fan of his comedic work), and Sher was very clever as Disraeli. All in all, a sterling performance by a wonderful cast. But this movie is just a little bit more that just great acting, it is also a moving story of the burdens of office, the mores of Victorian society, the anguish of the death of a loved one, and the blessing of true friendship. This is a very good movie. Don’t expect sex, violence or swearing, but if you’re looking for a quality film, this could be for you.
