The film centres on Dorothea (Bening), a single mum raising her teenage son at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. To help guide him through life, she enlists the help of the two women in their lives; Abbie (Gerwig), a free-spirited, punk-loving photographer living as a boarder in Dorothea’s home; and Julie (Fanning), a savvy and provocative teen.

In the great house, upstairs the Mountbattens grapple with the enormity of the task at hand; downstairs 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants find themselves unexpectedly caught in the middle of cultural conflict when India’s political elite converge on the house, each staking a claim for power in this newly independent nation. A film both epic and intimate, about the untold story of the end of an empire and the birth of two nations. Screening in the Young at Heart Film Festival 2017.
