VICTORIA AND ABDUL (Theatrical Release UK 2017)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì 

Victoria and Abdul—huge WOW! for Judi Dench—succeeds due to great casting choices and a unique view of the life of royalty. The movie has a terrific performance by Ali Fazal who plays the part of confidant to Queen Victoria. Eddie Izzard is a great pick for Bertie, Victoria’s son. The dialogue comes from a well-written script. Bravo for a wonderful film that serves all audiences.
