Dame Judi Dench stars as Queen Victoria in this new movie directed by Stephen Frears. The movie is taken from a real period in her life when she developed an odd friendship with an Indian servant over the last 15 years of her life, Abdul Karim who is played by young Indian actor Ali Fazal. Comedian Eddie Izzard has a nice part as Bertie, the Queen's son and future King Edward VII and veteran scene stealer Micheal Gambon has a smaller role as Lord Salisbury, the British Prime Minister of the day. It's a very interesting film about an little known part of history. Rated 6.8 on & that sounds about right.
