Linda Movie Review: TEA WITH THE DAMES
Dames Eileen Atkins, Judi Dench, Joan Plowright and Maggie Smith have been friends for almost 60 years. The premier actresses of England who have been honored by the Queen with knighthood get together a few times a year to have tea and commiserate on life, love and their careers.
The viewer gets a chance to sit at the table with these wonderful women as they open up and speak candidly about the difficulties they faced. From being told that they were not beautiful enough or having to compete against each other for coveted rolls. The archival footage is a genuine treat for their legion of fans.
