“You don’t have to be familiar with all of their work to appreciate their experience and the words of wisdom they impart on the audience.” – Matthew Toomey, ABC RADIO, Brisbane
“It’s not just what she says but the way she says it, that makes Judi Dench’s advice to her younger self so moving. Be less susceptible to falling in love, she says. This is one of the wonderful moments in this fly-on-the-wall documentary…” – Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
What happens when four legends of British stage and screen get together? Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Eileen Atkins, and Dame Joan Plowright are among the most celebrated actresses of our time, with scores of iconic performances, decades of wisdom, and innumerable Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, and BAFTAs between them. They are also longtime friends who hereby invite you to join them for a weekend in the country as they catch up with one another, reminisce, and share their candid, delightfully irreverent thoughts on everything from art to aging to love to a life lived in the spotlight. Bursting with devilish wit and whip-smart insights, Nothing Like a Dame is a remarkable opportunity to spend time in the company of four all-time greats – up close and unfiltered.
