Judi Dench Allows “Victoria And Abdul” To Step From History Books To Cinematic Glory

December 2, 2017

This is a richly told film production about a chapter of Queen Victoria’s life, which I was unaware of until last week.  James and I saw this on the big screen, and since we are both most fond of Judi Dench, we absolutely loved it!

The meticulous touches were in every scene.   Such as when Victoria, an older woman and needing to be steadied when dancing, will gently grasp the fabric of Abdul’s clothes as they move to the music.  It was not called attention to in any way–nor are the countless other such moments– but from a movie-watching perspective every scene has those small polished niceties that makes a movie a truly fantastic experience.

Five Stars!

    Glad you also enjoyed the film. We are also looking forward to the Churchill film.

    Thanks for the tip. I was waiting for this film to come to a theater near me and we saw it yesterday. That Judi Dame can really act. Makes me want to find her other film (1997) on the subject of life without her Albert, Mrs. Brown. And Ali Fazal is a tall drink of water. Several sayings came to mind while watching: Uneasy is the head that wears the crown; It’s lonely at the top; No good deed goes unpunished and Damn kids! There was a preview for the new Winston Churchill movie with Gary Oldman, Darkest hour, that looks good too.
