A romantic history

My wife and I watched the movie The Young Victoria and really enjoyed it. The acting, musical score, and cinematography are particularly good. For a movie, it appears to be surprisingly close to the actual history, and consequently quite educational. But, perhaps the movie is too sympathetic in its portrayal. Queen Victoria's reign covered 20 prime ministerships and shaped the British Empire, for better or for worse!
