Synopsis

In 1887 – the year of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee – a young clerk named Abdul Karim arrived in the UK from a poor region of India (then part of the British Empire) to take part in the celebrations and present the queen with a ceremonial coin. He is surprised to find favour with the queen herself and the pair strike up an unusual friendship. Despite attempts by her household and inner circle to put an end to their relationship, the pair develop a close bond, as the queen begins to question the constrictions of her long-held position on the throne. As their friendship deepens, Queen Victoria begins to see a changing world through new eyes.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
