I admit, I am a fan of Dame Judi Dench. and this was one of the basic motives for see the film. the second motif - Victoria trend. the last decade rediscovers her significant presence in modern history and the versions about her life are, each by each, useful. not the last- the sentimental existence of the Queen Victoria was always a seductive theme.

the film is a large garden of states. emotion, smile, sadness, wise advises, a relation who seems have the traits of maternal or teacher -student air. and great performances. especially Ali Fazal who, for me, is a splendid revelation about the build of a role far to be the most comfortable. a rich friendship lesson. rich for the nuances and for the impeccable art of actors, for the admirable script and for the atmosphere. and, sure, for the meet of youth of a man who seems ignore the rules and the last part of life of a woman out of expectations from the long reign.in same measure, a tolerance lesson/pledge.

so, a gift. who has not only the virtue to be a splendid film but tool /support for new perspectives about people, history and own ordinary life.
