Info: Judi Dench and Eddie Izzard star in this period drama about the unlikely friendship between Queen Victoria and a young Indian clerk Abdul Karim. When Abdul travels to London from India to deliver a ceremonial coin as part of the Queen's Golden Jubilee celebrations, he is surprised to find favour with the queen herself. Despite the reservations of Victoria's closest advisers, the pair go on to form a strong bond with Abdul rising through the ranks and becoming one of the Queen's most trusted allies. A fascinating and touching film with a remarkable lead performance from Judi Dench.
