Queen Victoria strikes up an unlikely friendship with a young Indian clerk named Abdul Karim.
Abdul Karim arrives from India to participate in Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee. The young clerk is surprised to find favour with the queen herself. As Victoria questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance that her household and inner circle try to destroy. As their friendship deepens, the queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes, joyfully reclaiming her humanity.
Starring Academy Award winner Judi Dench as Queen Victoria, Ali Fazal as Abdul Karim, Tim Pigott-Smith as Sir Henry Ponsonby and Michael Gambon as Lord Salisbury.
