  • Do you need a life pick-me-up? The dames are here for you.

  • Candid, insightful and unpredictable, Dame Eileen Atkins, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Joan Plowright and Dame Maggie Smith are not only acting legends but also great friends. And a treat to hang out with.

  • A delightful, delicate, delicious crustless-finger-sandwich of a film...

  • Tea With the Dames peters out as a conversation, given there's no real beginning, middle or end to the film. It's a privilege, however, to have been given a tableside seat to listen to this foursome reminisce and ruminate for an hour and a half.

    December 13, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • We're offered the precious illusion that we're close enough with four pillars of English theatre that they're chatting to us about their memories and feelings; that we get to see them as people and as friends.
