Cinematique Presents: "Viceroy's House"

Oct 5, 2017

Monday, October 23rd, to Wednesday, October 25th, on Thalian Hall's Main Stage Theatre. Monday to Wednesday will show the film at 7pm with an additional show on Wednesday at 4pm. 

New nations are rarely born in peace... India, 1947: Lord Mountbatten is dispatched, along with his wife, Edwina, to New Delhi to oversee the country's transition from British rule to independence. Taking his place in the resplendent mansion known as the Viceroy's House, Mountbatten arrives hopeful for a peaceful transference of power. But ending centuries of colonial rule in a country divided by deep religious and cultural differences proves no easy undertaking. Stars Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon, and Manish Dayal.

From the critics:

“Using the trappings of old-fashioned romanticism, Chadha envisions the cataclysmic upheaval of millions in the traumatic lives of a few.”

Serena Donadoni, Village Voice

“One of the main strengths of Chadha’s approach is the way she weaves the historical detail into the richly textured story with such a light touch.”

Wendy Ide, Screen International
