“Abdul Karim arrives from India to participate in Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee. The young clerk is surprised to find favor with the queen herself. As Victoria questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance that her household and inner circle try to destroy. As their friendship deepens, the queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes, joyfully reclaiming her humanity.”
A beautiful movie that looks good but and were actors are great, but I felt there were some story lacking… didn’t feel a particular special chemistry between the main characters, and I assumed that they definitely would have had it because they are so important to the plot and the outcome.
But I found it most interesting because it was based on true events and history.
Not the best biography/history told movie but managed to have my attention anyway, so. A solid movie and one that I would recommend more for the “history/drama” kind of movie fans.
