The Lady in the Van (12)

Director Nicholas Hytner. Biography/Drama, written by Alan Bennett


Maggie Smith stars in the hilarious and heartwarming ‘The Lady In The Van’. A colourfully complex character, Miss Shepherd “temporarily” parked in the driveway of Alan Bennett’s home – and stayed there for 15 years! After inviting herself in to Bennett’s house to use the bathroom, she proved impossible to budge. Despite her prickly, irascible nature, the neighbourhood quickly warmed to her certain brand of charm, and she eventually became the essential heart and soul of the community.

Starring Maggie Smith, James Corden, Jim Broadbent and Frances de la Tour
