Have you ever been surprised to find out a film was based on a book? Film Friday is a weekly feature that spotlights films that were adapted from books.
We’re back with Film Friday and this time, it’s Her Majesty Mrs. Brown. It stars Judi Dench as Queen Victoria and Billy Connolly as her Scottish servant, John Brown. PBS has a wonderful article about the making of the film.
Her Majesty Mrs. Brown (1997)
Queen Victoria is deeply depressed after the death of her husband, disappearing from public. Her servant Brown, who adores her, through caress and admiration brings her back to life, but that relationship creates scandalous situation and is likely to lead to monarchy crisis.
