  • While grieving for her dead husband, Prince Albert, Queen Victoria falls under the healthy influence of John Brown, the unapologetically brash Scottish manservant who oversees the royal retreat at Balmoral. When the two become close friends--and perhaps even physical intimates--the royal family and the nation reel from the scandal. Dench garnered a Golden Globe as Best Actress for her portrayal of the title character. Academy Award Nominations: 2, including Best Actress--Judi Dench, and Best Makeup.

    Sight and Sound

    "...The two leads are perfect..." -- 3 1/2 out of 4 stars
    USA Today

    "...Mrs. Brown transcends its period setting not only with a keenly observed struggle between love and duty but also with the kind of controversy that envelops the Queen and her servant..."
    New York Times

    "....What puts it ahead of the curve are the impressive, commanding performances....[Dench] is a thorough treat here in one of those tour de force performances..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...[Dench] is wonderful....The movie is insidious in its methods, asking us to see what is happening beneath the guarded surfaces..."
    Chicago Sun-Times
