Foreign Film & Discussion Series

Mrs. Brown

Join former Drexel Professor Ramesh Kajaria on Sunday, June 20th at 2:00 pm to watch and discuss this award-winning film from England.

In English, 1997. Rated PG. Registration not required.

Grieving widow Queen Victoria (Oscar nominee Judi Dench) withdraws into sadness for years until plainspoken manservant John Brown (Billy Connolly)  disrupts her mourning. But as their friendship grows, it results in personal and political ramifications for both of them. Exquisitely filmed and fueled by sparkling performances, director John Madden’s period drama brilliantly portrays the woman behind an empire and the man who helped her live again.
