Stephen Frears is famous for his sophisticated cinema, where humor connects with universal truths and the psychological depths of heroes. It is enough to mention films such as "Hits and Conquests," "Dangerous Relations," "Invisible," "Queen," and "Divine Florence."
"The Queen's Trustee" is a story of the extraordinary friendship she has associated with British Queen Victoria with Abdul Karim, an Indian Muslim who accompanied her and served her for the last 15 years of her reign. Wiktoria gave him the title of "munshi", the secretary, but also the teacher. The platonic relationship between the two was a source of gossip and uneasiness at the British court. It is speculated that thanks to the influence of Abdul Karim foreign policy of the country and the strong, uncompromising nature of the queen has been relaxed.
The author of the script, based on the book "Victoria & Abdul: The True Story of the Queen's Closest Confidant," is Lee Hall, Oscar-nominated screenwriter for Billy Elliot.
