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.

Disappointing - The Lady in the Van review by RL

Spoiler Alert
17/03/2016

A hugely disappointing, one-paced dirge of a film. I like Maggie Smith (who doesn't?) but even she couldn't save this. Essentially, what you get is the same scene regurgitated ad infinitum until a very silly ending. What are really little more than cameos from Jim Broadbent and Frances De La tour, are not enough to save this film.

Honestly, this could - and probably should - have been done in 15 minutes.

Disappointing despite Maggie - The Lady in the Van review by AW

Spoiler Alert

Deathly dull as once Maggie Smith's one liners were delivered, there wasn't much left. Agree this could have been over in 15 minutes.
