[[2]] Victoria & Abdul (2017) [imdb]

This movie passed 2 of 3 tests. It was entered by Prof Sai on 2017-10-11 17:55:58.



Prof Sai said:
The staff send Miss Phipps to the queen to deliver their threat to resign en-mass if she knights Abdul. (This being rather unfair since she isn't as upset as the others.)

The Queen meets Abdul's wife, but I don't think she has any lines, so doesn't qualify.

Possibly the Queen and her dressers, but I don't think they are named.

The whole film revolves around Abdul, so any scene passing the test would be rather vulnerable to editing.

Chris disagreed with the rating and said:
The film passes based on the scene where miss Phipps is talking to Victoria about the house staff resigning
