Victoria & Abdul is worth seeing for Dench's magisterial performance and for Frears's light but sure directorial touch. Just don't mistake it for actual history.

Awareness is where Frears balances both humour and drama because it's the core of the story, emotionally and politically. We can laugh at the politesse disguising denial, at the court's love of the crusty status quo, but Abdul is the emissary of change.

The film's attempt to portray the Queen as more politically enlightened than her courtiers is kindly but unconvincing, and many of the actors bark and behave as if participating in a spoof.

This film - which is, we're told, "based on real events - mostly" - tells of how the elderly queen got her groove back, so to speak.

It's up to historians to assess how accurate this funny, charming film is to the details of Queen Victoria's last years, but its use of poetic license is impeccable.

Victoria's story has been told pretty thoroughly, and this was probably Abdul's only shot on the big screen. It's such a shame they wasted it.

[STephen Frears] seems to have run out of ideas, despite Dench's riveting turn as Queen Victoria, Empress of India.

Victoria & Abdul may capture the ugly side of Britain's colonial past, but its demeaning portrait of Abdul reinforces the Orientalism it purports to lampoon.
