India, 1947: Lord Mountbatten (Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville) 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, setting off a seismic struggle that threatens to tear India apart.

“Impeccable production design and some fine performances, including Gillian Anderson’s as Mountbatten’s wife, hold this film together.” THE NEW YORK TIMES

“An elegant and lushly mounted film.” THE LOS ANGELES TIMES
