Viceroy’s House (12A) at Ely Cinema
Starring Michael Gambon, Gillian Anderson, Hugh Bonneville and directed by Gurinder Chadha.
Bonneville and Anderson play Lord and Lady Mountbatten, charged by
George VI to oversee the transition of power from Britain to the India it had
ruled for 300 years. Drama escalates as Hindu, Sikh and Muslim diff erences
threaten and the Mountbattens’ eff orts are often sorely misplaced.
Contains brief distressing images. 106 mins.
