At the first dinner, we can see the servers holding trays of soup standing behind the diners. Then the boy runs to the kitchen to announce they want the soup course. We see the waiters bringing trays of soup into the dining room then they cut to that same scene of the waiters standing behind the diners with the same trays of soup. See more »

Amazing and lovely Dame Judi Dench gives a humorous and heartwarming performance as Queen Victoria. The film is a funny and inspiring one.
The pros: Director Stephen Frears knows how to handle British giants like Helen Mirren (in for example "The Queen" (2006)) and, here, Judi Dench. Indian actor Ali Fazal is truly charming and he and Dench have a great chemistry.
The cons: The film is a bit predictable and sometimes feels a little too constructed.
