Dendy invites you to our First Look preview screening of Viceroy's House, on Monday May 15th at 10:30am and 6:30pm.
VICEROY’S HOUSE tells the true story of the final months of British rule in India.
Viceroy’s House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. After 300 years, that rule was coming to an end. For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten, great grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people.
The film’s story unfolds within that great House. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife and daughter; downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite - Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi - converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day.
Directed by Gurinder Chadha, who also directed the charming worldwide breakout hit Bend It Like Beckham, Viceroy’s House stars Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Gillian Anderson (The Fall) and Michael Gambon (Emma, The Harry Potter films), will be released in cinemas across Australia from May 18.
