Suggested correction: The film is a satirical representation of the events, not a historical documentary. Zhukov isn't from northern England, the committee did not comically carry Stalin around his dacha and Melenkov never told anyone to kiss his "Russian ass."

Victoria and Abdul picture

Continuity mistake: When the soup is about to be served, you see the horns blowing to introduce Victoria, and you can see all of the footmen lined up already with trays of soup, but in the next shot, it shows that they are just starting to march in to line up with their trays of soup.
