“The laughter and pure hysteria are infectious in this wildly enjoyable film.” – THE GUARDIAN
“So smart, witty and strong-willed, it’s a wrench to have to part company from them at the end of the film.” – THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
Sixty years ago, seismic changes ripped through the cultural establishment and, together with music and fashion, British theatre experienced an explosion of creativity and talent, the impact of which was felt around the world and is still tangible today.
Pivotal to these creative and social shifts were a group of young actresses including Eileen Atkins, Judi Dench Joan Plowright and Maggie Smith. All have received Damehoods in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the acting profession.
This film invites you to spend time with these icons as they talk about their lives now and then: their experience in theatre, TV and cinema and the memories they have from when they were bright young things right up to the present day – as they look back with the wisdom of their years.
