The Young Victoria. It is very good. :)

I saw it in the theater. I also watched Victoria and Albert over the weekend.

If you get a chance, rent Mrs. Brown. Takes place after Albert has died. Splendid cast, and exceptional performances, and based on a true story.

I saw Season of the Witch this past weekend. Unusual mix of historical fantasy and horror, but I really liked it. Kept me on the edge of my seat, interesting characters, great effects and probably my favorite Nicholas Cage movie so far.

Wow, you're probably some of the few who liked it, I saw a few reviews about how awful it was!
