Viceroy’s House

It is 1947, in Delhi. Three centuries of British rule in India is coming to an end. The last viceroy, Louis Mountbatten, is locked in negotiations with Indian leaders in a vain attempt top stop the sub-continent splitting into two separate states when the British depart.

Especially good performance by Gillian Anderson as Lady Mountbatten, but the film overall is conventional and simply competent. The themes tackled deserved something better.
