The Lady in the Van – This film tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd (Maggie Smith), a woman of uncertain origins who ‘temporarily’ parked her van in Bennett’s London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years.
Q-Tips say: We liked it – based on a true story. Mrs. Q says: Was slow in parts and they all have accents but overall a good movie offering some often hilarious insight from its fact-based source material. Maggie Smith does another outstanding acting grubby job. The Lady in the Van has a sweet message about how we should treat poor and elderly people and has a nice message. Should be fine for older kids and up, that is if you can get them away from their phones/I pads, etc.
