The Lady in the Van

'The Lady in the Van' is the film version of Alan Bennett's real life experience of a woman who camped on his property in her van for fifteen years creating havoc for himself and the neighbourhood.

The trailer suggests this film is a comedy but seen in full the story is a drama with humorous aspects. Maggie Smith does her arched voice, hand flapping acting that has become her signature style and Alex Jennings is superb as the put upon, conflicted Bennett.



  1. We were going to see it this afternoon, but a pending delivery might upset our plans.
