A grieving widow in 1861, Queen Victoria is joined on the Isle of Wight by her Highland pony and its handler, John Brown. He quickly antagonises her family and courtiers by his plain speaking and abrupt manner, but he does begin to coax the Queen out of her cocoon of widowhood. This is the well-told story of an unusual relationship with fine performances from Dame Judi Dench and Billy Connolly.
