Victoria & Abdul

‘Victoria & Abdul’ – Judi Dench ‘a wonder’ as Queen Victoria in UK-India cultural tale

The last time Judi Dench made this movie, it was with Billy Connolly and a Shetland pony.

This time, it’s with a limpid-eyed Indian.

Connolly and the pony worked better.

Taking place some years after “Mrs. Brown,” (Dench’s first foray as Queen Victoria), “Victoria & Abdul” cheekily claims to be “based on real events…mostly.”
