Movie Info

NOTHING LIKE A DAME is a unique celebration of the lives and careers of four of our most iconic actresses; Dame Eileen Atkins, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Joan Plowright and Dame Maggie Smith. All four have gone from being fledgling actresses in the 1950s to acting royalty. They've watched each other's careers grow and bloom and have celebrated life's ups and downs together. NOTHING LIKE A DAME invites you to spend time with these acting legends as they talk about their lives and their professional experiences across Theatre, Television and Film. Directed by Roger Michell (My Cousin Rachel, Notting Hill), the film also includes a range of astonishing archive material. Candid, funny, caustic, irreverent, poignant and utterly engrossing, this unmissable release is proof that there is truly nothing like a Dame...

Director Roger Michell did a beautiful job with his gentle, hands-off approach, which led to a marvellously entertaining programme.

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.

It is hard to overstate the charm of this restrained and intimate film.

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...

A lovely, lively and quick little eavesdrop session.

June 7, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

...the film plays out like you're sitting down for an afternoon cuppa with four of Britain's most talented actresses, listening to their stories and having a good old cackle, like friends do.
