Movie Review: Almost Friends (2016)

Many people can relate, and even confess, to being unmotivated in life.

Based “mostly” on a true story (in other words, fictional), Stephen Frears’ (“Florence Foster Jenkins”) Victoria and Abdul is an ode to the warmth of simple friendship and the wonders of British colonialism.
