Novel Comments

15 Oct

This entry is not really about a novel but instead about a movie. Just saw Victoria and Abdul. To misquote- How lonely is the head that wears the crown. The movie’s script and actors did an excellent job of portraying the interesting contrast of being in a position of power yet at the same time being a captive of the traditional role of monarch and also being a tool whom everyone around, except perhaps Abdul, tries to use to gain personal advantage.
