The Lady In The Van

Posted on March 4, 2016


The Lady In The Van – Very British movie, somewhat odd, slightly bizarre and the fact that it’s true or mostly true makes it rather remarkable.

For 15 years, a closeted writer, Alan Bennett (Alex Jennings) allows this weird lady, Mary Shepherd (Maggie Smith), to park her van in his driveway. She lives in the van and there’s some mystery going on. She’s cantankerous and ungrateful. Her brother calls her difficult. Bennett is uncertain about his life and talks to himself.

I liked it a lot.
