Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed as a must-see film, Her Majesty, Mrs. Brown is a riveting, true-life story about "two strong-willed people who find exhilaration in testing each other." (Roger Ebert)
Rugged Scotsman John Brown (Billy Connolly, Gulliver's Travels) is a lowly servant who looks after Queen Victoria's (Academy Award® winner Judi Dench Best Supporting Actress, Shakespeare in Love, 1998) horses. Yet when circumstances bring them together, the result is a passionate friendship that scandalizes a nation. Also featuring Gerard Butler (The Bounty Hunter), the commanding performances of Mrs. Brown are sure to leave you breathless.

It is very seldom that I get to watch the movie of this quality. It is absolutely brilliant.
This is a story of a unique friendship formed between two very unlike characters: Queen Victoria and her servant Mr. Brown. As the story developed I was completely absorbed by the lives of these two people, as if I was actually part of it rather then watching the film.
Story is incredibly well told (though I do wish filmmakers were not in such a rush to end it), cinematography is absolutely beautiful and as far as the historical part of the movie it was perfectly captured. And then there are actors involved in this movie.
I do not think that my knowledge of English language will allow me to fully describe superb talent of Judi Dench, which by all means is unmatched by anyone alive today. Her performance was absolutely flawless. Academy should be ashamed for not awarding her with an Oscar and choosing Helen Hunt's performance over hers. Not even a contest in my opinion.
As incredible as Judi Dench is I'm sure it is very hard to find costars that will not be completely overshadowed by her. But Billy Connelly filled the screen with his brilliant performance. Perfect chemistry between the two. And of course - Geoffrey Palmer who happens to be Judi's long time costar from BBC's "As Time Goes By" (which I think is one of the best TV comedies of all time). When you get so caught up in a movie that you forget it's not a real life you know that actors are doing an incredible job.
This is an exceptionally well made film, a stunning piece of cinematography. And I think it should be a part of any movie-lovers collection. It certainly is part of mine.

That is the question. Of course, when one thinks of Victoria, the idea of prudishness, conservatism, and a very reserved manner in action and morality naturally come to mind. It was never unusual for monarchs, male or female, to have lovers outside of their marriages (indeed, it might be considered unusual for a monarch to have been thought to have remained faithful), but Victoria? The epitome of a repressive, almost oppresive morality? Surely not.
Don't be so sure.
Four years after the death of Prince Albert, to whom Victoria was completely devoted, and for whom she mourned in quite public and dramatic fashion, against the protests of her children and her ministers, John Brown, a favourite ghillie of the royal couple, was brought back into service of the Queen household.
Victoria's favouritism toward him, coupled with his own brash and blunt behaviour, caused him to be envied and disliked by members of her family, her household service, her ministers, and largely by the public. There were parodies of John Brown's activities, done up in the form of mock Court Circulars (the official listing of royal engagements), which appeared in the press on both sides of the Atlantic.
It is unknown if Brown actually kept a diary (the movie speculates such, but also states that no diary was ever found). There was a large black trunk of correspondence found after Victoria's death, between the Queen and her doctor at the time, Profeit, regarding John Brown. This came into the possession of her new doctor, Reid, who recorded 'most compromising' secrets into his green memorandum book. Alas, this book was burned by Reid's son, and the trunk was not found. Did it refer to a secret marriage between Victoria and John Brown, as was often speculated?

Format: DVD
This movie leaves me in a quandary. I like costume dramas, and I have a particular fondness for depictions of the private lives of royals. This fondness, combined with the general paucity of such movies, causes me to cut them considerable slack regarding historical accuracy.

This movie was not too far off the mark in terms of hard fact. The death of Prince Albert really did send Queen Victoria into an excessively-prolonged grieving and withdrawal from public duties that began to unsettle the political equilibrium of Britain's constitutional monarchy. And there really was a John Brown, he was Scot, he was in service to Prince Albert at Balmoral, and he became a much-depended-upon personal attendant to Queen Victoria during her widowhood. All these things are accurately reflected in this movie.

So what's my quandary?

Well, the movie just feels wrong "tonally". Some movies about royalty take such liberties with the truth that they become purely dramatic constructs with no pretense to accuracy (and they can be fine entertainment). But when they seem to be conscientious about accuracy, as this movie appeared to be, the standard -- at least for me -- extends to include not just dramatic impact, but realistic portrayal of the complex, burdened, exposed, and heavily-examined lives reigning monarchs lived.

Judi Dench does her usual top-notch job of creating a sense of a character. But is it Victoria's character? Among her family, was she really an unrelentingly dour, domineering, censorious creature capable of opening her soul only to a servant? If her surviving correspondence and the recollections of her vast array of grandchildren peppered all over Europe are to be credited, the answer is no.
