The Lady in the Van (12)

Director Nicholas Hytner. Biography/Drama, written by Alan Bennett


Maggie Smith stars in the hilarious and heartwarming ‘The Lady In The Van’. A colourfully complex character, Miss Shepherd “temporarily” parked in the driveway of Alan Bennett’s home – and stayed there for 15 years! After inviting herself in to Bennett’s house to use the bathroom, she proved impossible to budge. Despite her prickly, irascible nature, the neighbourhood quickly warmed to her certain brand of charm, and she eventually became the essential heart and soul of the community.

Starring Maggie Smith, James Corden, Jim Broadbent and Frances de la Tour


Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A film that might have been made to order for Flicks; sad, touching, engaging, funny, quirky. A magnificent performance from Maggie Smith.

No wonder we had so many people come, the film was wonderful. Maggie Smith excelled as Miss Shepherd, and Alex Jennings was a revelation as Alan Bennett.

Absolutely wonderful film - funny, poignant, very moving -and Maggie Smith was superb. Having two Alans - himself and his conscience- was a brilliant touch. The audience loved it.
