Luton Film Factory presents

Viceroy's House is a British-Indian historical drama film set in 1947, during the partition of India. British statesman Lord Mountbatten serves as India's last Viceroy and is charged with handing India back to its people.
Partition involved the largest mass migration in human history, as 14 million people were displaced, and up to a million died as a result of sectarian violence, starvation and disease.
'By setting the entire film in Viceroy’s House in Delhi, [...] I was able to explore the multiple points of view of the protagonists, and grapple with the idea of partition without being overwhelmed by its tragedy. I do not believe that anyone but a British Indian – a product of Britain and India’s inextricable links – could truly inhabit these differing perspectives. I only hope that I do them justice' - Gurinder Chadha, Director

Featuring Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon, Hugh Bonneville, Manish Dayal, Simon Callow and Om Puri.

Running time: 106 mins
