Dir Gurinder Chadha

From the British-Indian director of Bend It Like Beckham comes a moving historical drama about the 1947 Partition of India. Downton’s Hugh Bonneville stars as Viceroy Louis Mountbatten, the well-meaning chap charged with handing India back to its rightful owners. However, this is no smooth transition. We see a country and a household full of inner turmoil and stark lines of division, which feel particularly resonant in the current political climate of Brexit and Trumpism. Gillian Anderson is superb as Lady Edwina Mountbatten with a cut glass accent that belies her roll-your-sleeves-up-and-muck-in attitude. It’s a shame the film doesn’t explore Louis’ alleged homosexuality or Edwina’s rumoured promiscuity, but nevertheless this is a stellar cast telling a fascinating story.
