This based-on-an-incredible-true-story crowd-pleaser stars Academy Award winner Judi Dench as the aging Queen Victoria who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a young Indian clerk (Ali Fazal) in the winter of her reign. Set against the rigid social order of Victorian England, the Queen questions the constrictions of her position, as she and Abdul forge an alliance that scandalizes her inner circle. An endearing delight with incredible performances, "this funny, touching adaptation of Shrabani Basu's 2010 biography has its own chemistry, withering wit, and unsentimental message of acceptance. A royal treat." --Total Film"Dench is extraordinary as the aging monarch." Common Sense Media"Judi Dench's Oscar-worthy second turn as Queen Victoria is a poignant portrait of fading power and human connection." Women's Voices for ChangeCast Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Tim Pigott-Smith
