From acclaimed director Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena) comes the true story of Queen Victoria (Dench) as she begins to see a changing world through new eyes. It’s 1887, and the British Empire is celebrating the Queen’s Golden Jubilee. Among the kings and princes in attendance is Abdul Karim (Fazal), a young clerk who has travelled from famine-ravaged India to present the ageing monarch with a ceremonial coin. What ensues is one of the most unlikely friendships in history, as the Queen questions the constrictions of her position.
