Nothing Like A Dame (12A).
The director of Enduring Love and Notting Hill draws together four of his favourite actresses and good friends, Dames Eileen Atkins, Judi Dench, Joan Plowright and Maggie Smith to let the cameras in on a friendship that goes back more than half a century. The four acting greats discuss their careers and reminisce about their humble beginnings in the theatre. A delight for anyone that’s enjoyed seeing these big and small screen greats, mastering the art of emotion is some of the standout dramas of our times. But don’t expect anything soft-touch here – these Dames are razor-sharp and they’re not afraid to share their honest opinions. Anticipate belly laughs.
“The laughter and pure hysteria are infectious in this wildly enjoyable film. I can’t for the life of me think of any other recent documentary in which I have laughed pretty much all the way through.”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
