An unlikely friendship between one of the most famous monarchs in British history and an Indian clerk will be screened at the Curzon cinema this week.

Victoria And Abdul (PG) stars Dame Judi Dench as the Queen who is preparing for her golden jubilee.

Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal) arrives from India to take part in the celebrations and is shocked when the monarch grants him a personal audience.

The pair forge a close friendship which the Queen’s closest allies fight against, but their bond only grows stronger as Abdul helps her to see the world in a completely new light.

Victoria And Abdul will be shown at the Curzon on Friday and will run until September 28.

The Curzon’s popular Britain On Film series will continue on Sunday, with the latest instalment exploring the history of Britain’s black community.

The film uses unseen footage to look at communities the length and breadth of the country including miners in Edwardian Lancashire and Yorkshire, soldiers joining the services to fight in World War One and growing racial tensions on housing estates in Liverpool and London.

The week will be rounded off with a 35mm screening of Blue Velvet (18).

When a severed human ear is found in a field, a young man begins an investigation into a beautiful nightclub singer and a criminal gang which has kidnapped her child.

The Curzon and the Times have teamed up once again to offer one lucky reader two tickets to see Victoria And Abdul.
