Baltimore Screening Pass-palooza: “Victoria and Abdul”!

With The Crown, Downton Abbey, Poldark and so many other period pieces available on streaming, I can’t be the only one who’s got a jones for seeing something on the big screen.  Well, how about Queen Victoria?  I’m in, are you?  Because I’ve got passes for Victoria and Abdul, a film based on the real-life friendship between Queen Victoria and a clerk from India.  Synopsis!

The extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s (Academy Award winner Judi Dench) remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), a young clerk, 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.

Personally, I’d watch Judi Dench read the phone book, but this looks like a very interesting story.  Plus, Queen Victoria was such an incredibly interesting person, it’s always a treat to see more about her.  Let’s go!

    Pick me! Loved Downton Abbey!!!



    Lady Judi Dench is simply an AWESOME actor. It would be great to see the untold story of how cultural differences impacted political thought during that time period.
