DESCRIPTION:

The decision taken in this house has consequences that reverberate to this day.

For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people. The film’s story unfolds within the Viceroy’s great house. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife and daughter; downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite – Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi – converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day.  The film stars Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson and Michael Gambon.
