    Judi Dench was absolutly SUPURB. I've really hated so many movies lately, including that joke, The Shape of Water, but this I just loved. Worth purchasing for sure. Dench is warm and salty and her relationship w/ Abdul is just pure and real.
  • Boring

    She has made me hate her and love her at the same time in some of her character rolls. She has always been one saucy Brit to me. I love the portrayal of one of the best queens besides our current saucy reigning royal herself. But I like the indifference that they show on the screen and how it was for Abdul to serve the queen. It was heart felt and sometimes funny. Definitely an untold story that needed a little light on it.

    such a weird combination of a few sweet moment with sick comedy. way below Judi Dench. what the British empire did to India is made trite. there are several quite well known actors in this movie and they must have all needed money.
  • Love!

    It’s a part of history that wasn’t in the textbooks. And I like Dame Dench as well!
