Victoria and Abdul

2017 Biography

At the age of 81, Queen Victoria (Dench) is tired, lonely and the longest-reigning monarch in British history. As Empress of India, she is brought a new servant from that distant land, a young man named Abdul Karim (Fazal), who quickly catches the queen’s eye. At her urging, he tells the queen about life in India, and she promotes him to the formal role of her royal teacher, as well as the informal role of her dearest friend. The two form a deep bond, but for other members of the nobility, the queen’s friendship with a low-born Indian man is a scandal of incredible proportions.
