Utterly delicious, this tea with Champagne with the Dames.
November 6, 2018
Tea With The Dames is an excellent introduction to the careers of these 4 women, but unfortunately it isn't able to devote the time necessary to give a full picture of its subjects lives and contributions to the world of film and theater.

As the tea turns to champagne and they talk about their mortality and the indignities of aging, the four women stop being famous actresses and seem like any other group of old friends.

"Tea with the Dames" is hardly a groundbreaking documentary to watch. However, for fans of the craft of acting and of these legends, it's a can't miss.

These four great ladies of stage, screen, and television, and longtime friends in real life, get together for an afternoon of tea and conversation -- always, trenchant, often hilarious.

An endearing introduction to a wealth of celebrated performances. And for those who are well-acquainted with the dames, the film is everything you'd expect it to be and more.

Director Roger Michell gets these grand gals to talk and talk and talk some more. Obviously, though, no direction is needed for them to make us smile and even touch us, too.

Maggie Smith, wow is she hilarious! If anything, you'll wonder how she hasn't been given more comedic roles.

This is not really a film about friendship; it's a true and rare sisterhood of British theater royalty, and it's a privilege to be allowed to sit in on it and share their tea.

Tea with the Dames will enchant fans of the actresses, and it is nice to see them for who they are, swapping acting tips, or talking about milestones in their careers. It's a nice documentary, but it is also far too slight and polite.

The documentary Tea With the Dames... is pure catnip for movie lovers, drama geeks and anybody who loves a good yarn.

Tea with the Dames is absolutely charming and surprisingly emotional. As viewers are welcomed into the garden of Plowright's home, they will find a respite from the world...

I guarantee that the appearance of the end credits will leave you wanting much more.

While these four actresses are magnificent, their choice of directors is less so; Roger Mitchell (Notting Hill, Hyde Park on the Hudson) makes his biggest contribution by moving the discussion indoors at the sight of rain.

Anyone who is a fan of acting legends should give Nothing Like a Dame a spin. Ideally during a sunny afternoon, with a spot of tea and finger food at the ready.

That's not to say the whole isn't still extremely entertaining with their wealth of humor and priceless anecdotes. It simply never quite delivers what it appears to sell.

Don't be surprised if you crave a second cup, served just like this one, straight with no sugar.

... provides a fitting tribute to each member of the quartet, with a few surprising insights and witticisms along the way.
