"Judi Dench - another winner"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I hugely admire this actress and she doesn't disappoint here either. A wonderfully warm, often funny, and deeply moving story.

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.

Critic Reviews for Victoria & Abdul

“Victoria & Abdul is worth seeing for Dench's magisterial performance and for Frears's light but sure directorial touch. Just don't mistake it for actual history.” Christopher Orr The Atlantic

“Whether "Victoria & Abdul” holds up to historical scrutiny is up for debate – the prologue says the film is “based on true events… mostly” – but Dench, as always, is the real deal." Adam Graham Detroit News

“Judi Dench can do no wrong, and playing Queen Victoria for the second time in the richly satisfying Victoria and Abdul is an acting lesson par excellence that proves how rapturous it is to watch this great artist do everything right.” Rex Reed New York Observer
