Documentary Film - Tea with the Dames

IT’S SUMMER AND TIME FOR

DOCUMENTARY LIGHT

Or, in this case,

DOCUMENTARY DELIGHT!

Join us for the delightful





See what happens when four legends of British stage and screen get together. Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Eileen Atkins, andDame Joan Plowright are among the most celebrated actresses of our time, withscores of iconic performances, decades of wisdom, and innumerable Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, and BAFTAs between them.


They are also longtime friends who hereby invite you to join them for a weekend
in the country as they catch up with one another, reminisce, and share theircandid, delightfully irreverent thoughts on everything from art to aging to love to a life lived in the spotlight.

Perhaps an even more fitting title for ... Roger Michell’s delightful documentary, “Tea with the Dames ... would’ve been “Grand Dames Gossiping.

LAT - KENNETH TURAN

Candid, insightful and unpredictable, Dame Eileen Atkins, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Joan Plowright and Dame Maggie Smith are not only acting legends but also great friends ... a treat to hang out with ...

One  key player in the quartet’s professional and personal lives was Laurence Olivier, the great actor of his generation and the founding artistic director of the National Theatre.

 

Smith acted with Olivier many times — “I was more scared of him than the critics,” she cracks — and Plowright, who married as well as worked with him, thinks carefully before she calls the whole experience “a great privilege and a bit of a nightmare.”
