Victoria and Abdul


From 29th September – 5th October

Judi Dench, Ali Fazal and Eddie Izzard deliver inspiring performances in Victoria and Abdul – A truly lovely film which tells the true story of a very unlikely friendship between Queen Victoria and a young clerk named Abdul, the latter of whom travels from India in order to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

Abdul, unexpectedly, finds favour with Queen Victoria, and their friendship leads to the Queen herself questioning the constrictions of rule. Queen Victoria’s household and inner circle, as well as Abdul’s friends attempt to sully the alliance between monarch and accountant at every turn, and the implications of a rapidly changing Empire are eventually made clear to Queen Victoria throughout the film’s duration.
