From director Stephen Frears (High Fidelity, The Queen, Philomena), Vicoria and Abdul is a biography drama chronicling the life of Queen Victoria, and is based on the book written by Shrabani Basu. I thought Philomena was fantastic and I admire Frears as a director, plus how can you go wrong with the amazing Judi Dench?! The cast includes Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Olivia Williams, and Michael Gambon. Check out the official trailer below!!
