TEA WITH THE DAMES (M)
LINGER, LISTEN, LEARN AND LAUGH, UK, 83 MIN You are hereby invited to afternoon tea with four legendary ladies of British stage and screen. The big sister of the bunch and hostess for the day is Joan Plowright, 88. Joining her to dish some dirt on their shared profession – in the best possible taste, of course – are Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Eileen Atkins, all 83. The camaraderie of these women is infectious. The interplay of the subjects can get surprisingly prickly, unapologetically honest and unexpectedly poignant in the blink of an eye. A lovely, lively and quick little eavesdrop session.
