Tea With The Dames

Te Awamutu Courier - - Entertainment -

From time to time four old friends, all ex­tra­or­di­nary ac­tresses, meet up in the English coun­try­side to gossip, to re­mem­ber and to laugh. For once they let the cameras in…

Tea With the Dames is a unique cel­e­bra­tion of the lives and ca­reers of four of our most iconic ac­tresses; Dame Eileen Atkins, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Joan Plowright and Dame Mag­gie Smith.

All four have gone from be­ing fledg­ling ac­tresses in the 1950s to act­ing roy­alty.

They've watched each other's ca­reers grow and bloom and have cel­e­brated life's ups and downs to­gether.

The film in­vites you to spend time with these act­ing leg­ends as they talk about their lives and their pro­fes­sional experiences across the­atre, tele­vi­sion and film.

Di­rected by Roger Michell (My Cousin Rachel, Not­ting Hill), the film also in­cludes a range of as­ton­ish­ing ar­chive ma­te­rial.

Can­did, funny, caus­tic, ir­rev­er­ent, poignant and ut­terly en­gross­ing, this un­miss­able re­lease is proof that there is truly noth­ing like a Dame.
