YOUR EXCLUSIVE COMPLIMENTARY MOVIE PREVIEW
o t British-Indian historical drama Viceroy’s House
Starring Hugh Bonneville and Gillian Anderson as Lord and Lady Mountbatten, and set against an exotic and lavish backdrop at the time of the Raj, the powerful new film Viceroy’s House tells the incredible true story of the final months of British rule in India and is a celebration of the resilience of the human spirit. The film’s release will coincide with the 70th anniversary of the independence of India and the founding of Pakistan.
The Viceroy’s House was the home of the British rulers of India. Charged with handing India back to its people, the Mountbattens lived upstairs, where the political elite wrangled over the birth of independent India. Downstairs, among the 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants, the social impact of this divide is reflected through the eyes of a pair of young lovers whose sweeping romance is forbidden.
Viceroy’s House will be in cinemas nationwide from 3 March, but YOU readers can see it first and free at 20 cinema screenings taking place across the UK on Wednesday 22 February. To see the trailer go to mailonline.co.uk/you
