New nations are rarely born in peace... India, 1947: Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville) is dispatched, along with his wife Edwina (Gillian Anderson), 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.

With sumptuous period detail, director Gurinder Chadha brings to life a pivotal historical moment that re-shaped the world.

"One of the main strengths of Chadha’s approach is the way she weaves the historical detail into the richly textured story with such a light touch."
Wendy Ide - SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

"The film carries a trace of the sweep of a great screen epic along with the straightforward, explanatory qualities of mass-audience TV, and is never less than absorbing."
Ben Kenigsberg - THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Ultimately, VICEROY'S HOUSE might be worth a visit just for certain tasty details, such as how Lady Edwina and her adult daughter greedily scarf down the chicken meant for the family dog without shame after having their palates dulled by wartime rationing. "
Susan Wloszczyna - ROGEREBERT.COM

"Using the trappings of old-fashioned romanticism, Chadha envisions the cataclysmic upheaval of millions in the traumatic lives of a few."
Serena Donadoni - VILLAGE VOICE
