Description

The extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s (Academy Award® winner Judi Dench) remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favour with the Queen herself. As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that her household and inner circle all attempt to destroy. As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity.

    Such a touching story with a great message inside. I have watched this 5 times already, I love how it is telling you to respect everyone & everything, no matter if the are black, white, Muslim or any other religions. It truly is an amazing story I rate 10/10 if you haven’t watched it yet I highly recommend this film.

    Dame Judy Dench does not disappoint in this “sequel” to Mrs Brown in which she played alongside Billy Connely. I did not know that Abdul’s journal had been found in 2010. This and the filming on location at Osborne House adds to the realism and poignancy of the production. Much to ponder here. Perhaps we should have a followup on Queen Victoria and the Kaiser?

    Entertaining and fascinating insight into a relationship which was ‘hushed up’ at the time. Really enjoyed the story - and as ever Dame Judi Dench excels in her role.
