PG

Mrs. Brown is a historic drama about the ruler of England who discovers the value of common friendship. After the death of her husband Prince Albert, Queen Victoria played by Judi Dench is dejected, and she remains in mourning for two years after Albert's passing. When one of her servants suggests that horseback riding may be good for the Queen's state of mind. So, a Scotsman named John is hired as her guide and groom. At first, the Queen shows no interest in riding, though Brown readies a horse for her each day; finally, after several days, Mr. Brown speaks frankly to the Queen and lets out the truth, something no one would ever do. It is looked down upon and is not tradition. While her court is shocked, the Queen is refreshed that someone would actually speak to her so directly. Soon the Queen is riding with Mr. Brown every morning, and she discovers him to be a friend and confidante who will speak to her as a person and not as a potentate. However, many are shocked by their relationship, believing that the commoner Mr. Brown is using his friendship for his advantage in politics or that he's become her lover.
