Afternoon Film: Victoria and Abdul (PG) Accessible

Tue, 13th March, 2018 @ 14:00pm - 15:55pm


for Victoria and Abdul

Queen Victoria strikes up an unlikely friendship with a young Indian clerk named Abdul Karim.

Abdul Karim arrives from India to participate in Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee. The young clerk is surprised to find favour with the queen herself. As Victoria questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance that her household and inner circle try to destroy. As their friendship deepens, the queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes, joyfully reclaiming her humanity.

“Tired of the unremitting round of royal duties, she longs for novelty and colour – which the handsome, twinkling Abdul, full of wise teachings and swirling stories from the Raj, is delighted to provide.” Telegraph

“Dench is 82 now, but she remains the world’s most formidable pixie, and in “Victoria & Abdul” she’s in her element and in her snappish, showbiz-melancholy prime.”  Variety

“Dench is extraordinary as the ageing monarch” -common sense media
