What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Victoria and Abdul is a fact-based drama about the elderly Queen Victoria's (Judi Dench) unique relationship with Abdul Karim, a Muslim Indian man who starts off as her servant until she elevates his status, scandalizing her family and household staff. Expect occasional strong language ("s--t," "bloody," "arsehole") and a couple of disturbing scenes: one in which royal security officers harass a Muslim family and burn their belongings, and another in which a man coughs up blood. A dead body is shown, and a few racist remarks are said in reference to Abdul. It has a clear message about very different people being able to bond over universal experiences and feelings, and curiosity and gratitude are themes. Families who watch together may want to discuss the film's historical context, as well as how fact-based dramas sometimes take liberties for the sake of fiction.
