Victoria and Abdul – Given the honor of presenting India’s gift to the aging Queen (Judi Dench), Abdul is totally thrilled. Best friend Mohammed (Adeel Akhtar), not so much.

Their Finest – Set in 1940s London, it’s a very 1940’s movie. The Ministry of War Department wants an authentic movie made, partly to inspire their troops and country; partly to enlist America’s help. Authentic was described as “real life with the boring cut out.” Catrin Cole (Gemma Atherton) gets hired as a scriptwriter at […]
