2017106 MinsDrama
Judi Dench is reliably brilliant here, returning to the role she won a BAFTA for in Mrs Brown back in 1997. Billy Connolly is nowhere to be seen this time, so instead Dench's ageing and increasingly cantankerous Queen Victoria takes a shine to the humble Indian servant - Ali Fazal's Abdul - shipped over from Agra to present a ceremonial coin in celebration of the golden jubilee. As their remarkable real-life relationship blossoms, Abdul goes from footman to "Munshi", meaning teacher, a promotion not entirely welcomed by a circle of resentful, scheming courtiers - including Her Majesty's son and Prince of Wales, Bertie (Eddie Izzard). Philomena's Stephen Frears directs.
