Synopsis
An Indian clerk named Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal) travels to London to present Queen Victoria (Judi Dench) with a ceremonial coin for her Golden Jubilee. The pair form an unexpected bond upon meeting, but the lifelong friendship that develops is threatened by the disapproval of Victoria's inner circle. As the Queen contemplates what her life of service has meant and the restrictions it has placed on her, Abdul brings her joy as he indulges her fascination with the country she rules over from half a world away. Directed by Stephen Frears. Michael Gambon, Eddie Izzard, and Olivia Williams co-star.

Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "Dench has once more made this iconic figure engagingly, relatably and all-too-fallibly human -- right down to her very pores."
Dan Jolin (11 Sep 2017, )
Rolling Stone
"Since Dame Judi Dench is acting royalty she has no trouble playing the hell out of Queen Victoria in her last years on the throne of England."
Peter Travers (21 Sep 2017, )
The Guardian
3 stars out of 5 -- "Dench is captivating as the cantankerous queen..."
