Viceroy’s House (12A)
Saturday 14th October 7:30pm
Starring Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon and Hugh Bonneville
Seventy years after the Partition of India, director Gurinder Chadha delivers this poignant tribute to the millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims – including members of her own family – who were uprooted or killed in what remains the largest mass migration of people in history.
The final Viceroy of India, Lord Mountbatten, is tasked with overseeing the transition of British India to independence, but meets with conflict as different sides clash in the face of monumental change. The film has proved a hit with both critics and audiences and has been a huge success at community cinema events across the county.
