The Lady in the Van (12A)


Directed by Nicholas Hytner

Starring Maggie Smith, Alex Jennings, Dominic Cooper, James Corden


A big screen adaptation of writer Alan Bennett’s iconic and celebrated memoir, directed by long-standing Bennett collaborator Nicholas Hytner. The film tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who ‘temporarily’ parked her van in Bennett’s London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. Their unique story is funny, poignant and life-affirming. 


“Smith's performance… is terrifically good” THE GUARDIAN

“The glory of the film remains: Maggie Smith (is) hilarious” EVENING STANDARD

“Maggie Smith delivers a compelling performance” THE TIMES
