Why are these two so important to each other?

First, let me say that this movie was gorgeous. Secondly, I'll say that Dame Judy Dench and Eddie Izzard are great, and...well that's about it.

In my opinion, Dench and Fazal have absolutely no chemistry. The whole movie I kept waiting for something to connect these two in a way that would feel meaningful, and it never came.

I kept thinking, "Why would this woman care so much about this man?" He seems to relish her presence and her his...but why?

He treats his friend like absolute garbage and he just seemed like such a selfish individual, even with his childlike wonder about royalty, he just never seemed to "get it".

Go back and watch Mrs. Brown to see a better Queen Victoria story.

Who Knew!

Absolutely loved this film! Dame Judi Dench lovingly portrayed Queen Victoria as an emotionally conflicted monarch.

Safe and Dull Period Piece

A very nice but very dull movie about Queen Victoria (Judi Dench) and a friendship she strikes up with a visiting Indian servant.

This is the kind of movie that you can walk out on for long periods of time, come back to, and still know exactly what's happening because everything is geared to being as unchallenging and transparent as possible. If you're terrified of having a thought of your own during a movie, this is the one for you. Dench is cranky and regal, the Indian servant is refreshingly articulate and human (but wait, aren't all Indians supposed to be savages?!!), and the British aristocracy are presented not just as jerks but as bumbling foolish jerks. We know who the bad English people are because they smirk directly into the camera and practically twirl their silent movie villain mustaches. At one point, after talking about traditional English cuisine, one Indian leans into another and proclaims the English to be savages for eating things like blood pudding. Get it? Because English people think Indians are savages, and now the Indians think the English are savages. Isn't that funny?!!

"Victoria and Abdul" is the kind of movie the Academy turns to when they need a fifth one to fill out their costume design category.

Grade: C
