Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: In Victoria & Abdul, the Empress of India comes off honest, loving and decent. That seems deaf as well as stupid.
Fresh: The movie ultimately all comes down to Dench, and the film becomes a frame of her performance. It's a great performance.
Fresh: Is there a more monarchial actress alive than Dench? She could play Victoria in her sleep.
Fresh: Frears hasn't just made an historical recreation; he has made a movie containing a message with universal implications for all places and times when racism rears its head.
What was Dame Dench thinking? How do you follow Mrs.Brown with this despicable excuse for a film? #Retirebeforeyouruinwhatsleftofyourlegacy
