Stephen Frears – director of The Queen (2006) which starred Helen Mirren and Michael Sheen has a new movie based on another British monarch, one who’s played by Judi Dench. Also starring Olivia Williams, Ali Fazal, Eddie Izzard, Michael Gambon and Tim Pigott-Smith, the story of Victoria & Abdul focuses on Victoria’s unlikely friendship with a young Indian clerk named Abdul Karim.
Dame Judi Dench and the promising humour are all the reason I need to watch. There is however, my desire to see an ageing female monarch take charge of herself and others with aplomb.
Victoria & Abdul Release Dates: September 15th, 2017 (UK); September 22nd, 2017 (US)…
