Victoria & Abdul (Parent And Baby Screening)
Director. Stephen Frears
The year is 1887 and Queen Victoria is comfortably installed as Empress of India, although she has never visited the domain for fear of assassination. In Agra, two lowly men - Abdul Karim and Mohammed - are chosen by British authorities to present the monarch with a ceremonial gold coin called a mohur. They travel to Windsor Castle and receive a crash course in royal etiquette. Soon after, Abdul catches Victoria's eye and the visitor is rapidly promoted to the monarch's spiritual advisor.
