Cast: Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Eileen Atkins, Joan Plowright
Four extraordinary actresses and old friends meet up in the English countryside to gossip, to remember and to laugh. Nothing Like a Dame is a unique celebration of four iconic British actresses: Eileen Atkins, Judi Dench, Joan Plowright and Maggie Smith. All started out as fledgling actresses in the 1950s and have withstood the industry’s vicissitudes to become acting royalty. Directed by Roger Michell, this playful documentary invites you to watch as they talk about their lives and professional experiences, illustrated by a superb archive footage. Candid, infectiously funny and engrossing – it’s proof there truly is nothing like a Dame.
“Dench, Smith, Eileen Atkins and Joan Plowright engage in a round-table war of theatrical anecdotes in this outrageously funny film” ***** Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
