TEA WITH THE DAMES (M)

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - MOV IES -

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.
