Bravo! - The Lady in the Van review by BE

Spoiler Alert
26/02/2016

Seen at the cinema. Predictable stuff but Maggie Smith is always a joy to watch. Nobody does 'put down' expressions like her. Brilliant acting with the lady in tatty and soiled clothing still maintaining an air of dignity from an earlier lifestyle. Alex Jennings also exceptional as Alan Bennett.

A beautiful portrayal - The Lady in the Van review by AR

Spoiler Alert

A most unusual story of utter simplicity, telling us that Alan Bennett's a man of real heart, and realised with consulate expertise and great sensitivity. And a lovely revisiting of gentler times in the still-recent past. And the Pythonesque end? A fitting culmination for someone who was living all her life in a cloud!

Maggie still afoot - The Lady in the Van review by NC

Alas my hearing not good, so missed lots of the clever dialogue. Maggie does amazing work, yet again, and the Bennett actor is well up to it. Small cameo at very end by Bennett himself was nice touch.

Not a Hollywood glamour job, but nice to see some proper acting once in a while!
