Movie Quote of the Day – The Young Victoria (Jean-Marc Vallée, 2009)

Princess Victoria: Do you ever feel like a chess piece yourself? In a game being played against your will.

Prince Albert: Do you?

Princess Victoria: Constantly. I see them leaning in and moving me around the board.

Prince Albert: The Duchess and Sir John?

Princess Victoria: Not just them. Uncle Leopold. The king. I’m sure half the politicians are ready to seize hold of my skirts and drag me from square to square.

Prince Albert: Then you had better master the rules of the game until you play it better than they can.

Princess Victoria: You don’t recommend I find a husband to play it for me?

Prince Albert: I should find one to play it with you, not for you.
