beautiful movie. Judi Dench is fantastic!
Well done. rather timely, considering our current state of political affairs. Actually gives me more respect for Victoria.
Fine performances from a cast of pros generally win out over the story's more formulaic aspects.
The film’s lavish production values and a comic register more impish than truly acerbic makes this a surprisingly cosy piece of luxury heritage cinema.
There’s not much to Victoria Abdul, but as a delivery system for Judi Dench, it serves its purpose. Otherwise, it’s just Buckingham Palace fetishism cranked up to peak mumsy.
