Description

JUDI DENCH IN PERSON!

Tuesday, November 28 – 7:00 PM

With decades of acclaimed stage performances and memorable film roles ranging from James Bond’s boss to two Queens of England, Dame Judi Dench remains among Britain’s greatest actresses.

VICTORIA AND ABDUL, 2017, Focus Features, 106 min. Dir. Stephen Frears. A humorous exploration of race, religion, power and the farce of empire through the prism of an unusual and deeply moving friendship, this extraordinary true story had been deliberately hidden for a century. In 1887, Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal) travels from India to present a ceremonial medal as part of Queen Victoria’s (Judi Dench) Golden Jubilee and surprisingly finds favor with the elderly monarch. The unprecedented and unlikely relationship causes a battle royale within the royal household, pitting the queen against court and family.

MRS. BROWN, 1997, Park Circus/Miramax, 101 min. Dir. John Madden. Following the death of Prince Albert in 1861, a devastated Queen Victoria (Judi Dench) largely retreated from public life. In an effort to coax her back to her royal duties, one of Albert’s trusted servants, John Brown (Billy Connolly), was assigned to work for the monarch; the scandalously close relationship that ensued inspired this perceptive and witty fact-based drama. Dench’s performance as Victoria brought her Golden Globe and BAFTA awards as well as an Oscar nomination

Discussion following with actress Judi Dench. This event is free with RSVP; see website for details.
