Trivia

Goofs

In one scene in the movie Queen Victoria tells Abdul that she is the longest reigning monarch in the world. This is not correct. Until Queen Elizabeth II overtook her she was the longest reigning monarch in British history, but the longest reigning monarch was French King Louis XV who reigned for over 70 years. See more »

That Dame can act!
15 September 2017 | by (Reading) – See all my reviews

Some good performances to support another superb performance by Judy Dench. Izzard was a revelation.

Good pace, good camera work - More history well told than masterpiece, but a good night out.

More comedic lines than I was expecting. Is the racism at the core of the film as much about class as religion?
