I find unlikely friendships absolutely amazing and breathtaking. I love thinking about some of the friends I have very different lives, experiences and opinions than my own. Many of my friends and I have different religious beliefs or talents…dislikes and likes.
But the friendships work. Because we respect each other and listen. I think that’s key to friendships that we may think would never work. No judgement and simply, listen.
This Sunday is National Friendship Day and the upcoming film, based on the true story, ‘Victoria & Abdul,’ shows us the real-life, unlikely friendship that Queen Victoria and a clerk from India had…and the impact it had on both.
And let’s just be honest. Anything with Judi Dench is not going to ever disappoint. The woman can transport you to any place, at any time.
Check out the trailer. This movie will be in theaters this September.
