TEA WITH DAMES

The original British release of this movie was titled NOTHING LIKE A DAME. The Dames in question are the four female leading lights of the British stage and screen: Judi Dench, Joan Plowright, Maggie Smith and Eileen Atkin.
Together they’re 342 years old. Funny, sharp, smart and sometimes delightfully bawdy they reminisce in unguarded conversation. The words flow: clever, cool, caustic, iconic, it’s like being with them for a free-flowing tea.
