Victoria & Abdul (PG) The year is 1887, and the British Empire is celebrating Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee. A young Indian clerk, Abdul Karim (Fazal), travels to England to present the monarch with a ceremonial coin. “Whatever you do, you must not look at Her Majesty”, he is told. But he does. And he smiles. And so begins one of the unlikeliest friendships in history. As the Queen (Dench) questions the constrictions of her long-held position, she forms a strong bond with her newest servant. Their devoted alliance provokes outrage and conspiracy within the Royal Household, but it rejuvenates the cosseted ruler, who begins to see a changing world through new eyes. A lavish, heartfelt period drama with wit and charm, Victoria & Abdul allows us to peek beyond the portraits and imagine the hardships – and joys – of being the figurehead of the last true empire. Friday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 6pm and 8.15pm, Saturday at 3.30pm, 6pm and 8.15pm, Sunday at 2.45pm, 5.15pm and 7.30pm and Tuesday at 2pm and 5pm.
