Oscar winner Judi Dench and Ali Fazal star in Stephen Frears’s (Philomena, The Queen) new film, the extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s rule. When young clerk Abdul Karim travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favour with the Queen herself. As she questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance that her inner circle attempts to destroy. Their friendship deepening, the Queen sees a changing world and the limits of Empire through new eyes; joyfully reclaiming her humanity.
