Victoria & Abdul is the extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s remarkable rule. When a young clerk named Abdul Karim travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favor with the Queen herself.
As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that her household and inner circle all attempt to destroy.
As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity.
Starring the amazing Academy Award winner Judi Dench as Queen Victoria and Ali Fazal as Abdul Karim, this film is such a beautiful story. Watch the trailer:
