Though a film set 70 years ago, there’s a profound sense of relevance to Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy’s House, and when we sat down with Gillian Anderson – who plays Edwina Mountbatten – she discussed the pertinency of the project at hand.
“Things haven’t changed,” she said. “But can we learn from our mistakes? And what is our moral responsibility to things like immigrants or refugees? It’s a big contemporary topic”.
In 1947, British statesman Lord Mountbatten serves as India’s last Viceroy and is charged with handing India back to its people.
Viceroy’s House is released on March 3rd, and you can read our review here.
