Judi Dench stars in the extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim travels from India to participate in the Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favour with the Queen herself. As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity. It’s a similar vignette from the life of the long reigning monarch to the role that Dench received her first Oscar nomination for 20 years ago in Mrs Brown. Second time lucky?
