I am sicker than sick right now. I've been to the doctor twice now. At first I thought I had strep but I didn't. I went back today because I am getting much worse, not better. My throat is killing me and I have a sinus infection. Blah, blah, blah. I've been cooped up in bed and want to know what I've been doing? Watching Netflix movies on my tiny laptop.
I started out watching movies like The Sixth Sense and stuff like that. Those got old REAL fast. I decided to break out of my comfort zone and watch a movie called "Young Victoria."
I was NOT disappointed.
Here's the story line from a website I found: Dominated by her possessive mother and her bullying consort,Conroy, since childhood, teen-aged Victoria refuses to allow them the power of acting as her regent in the last days of her uncle, William IV's rule. Her German cousin Albert is encouraged to court her for solely political motives but, following her accession at age eighteen, finds he is falling for her and is dismayed at her reliance on trusty premier Melbourne. Victoria is impressed by Albert's philanthropy which is akin to her own desire to help her subjects. However her loyalty to Melbourne, perceived as a self-seeker, almost causes a constitutional crisis and it is Albert who helps restore her self-confidence.She proposes and they marry, Albert proving himself not only a devoted spouse,prepared to take an assassin's bullet for her, but an agent of much-needed reform, finally endorsed by an admiring Melbourne.
