Tea With The Dames is a truly wonderful way to spend an afternoon. An afternoon with these British treasures is an afternoon well spent.

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.

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

Although they touch upon their fear of loneliness, Tea With The Dames is bright because of the greatness of their camaraderie.

Talky doc fun for fans but unlikely to hold teen interest.

While no one actually drinks any tea in director Roger Michell's film, the women profiled metaphorically spill the tea on their co-stars, each other and the industry at large.

Tea with the Dames is one of the most delightful documentaries to come along in a period that has been full of wonderful documentaries.
October 24, 2018
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.

Utterly delicious, this tea with Champagne with the Dames.
September 21, 2018
At a scant 83 minutes, the film's most egregious sin is that there isn't more of it. Roger Mitchell could easily have made a full-length series out of this wistful gossip sesh amongst a quartet of lifelong friends who just so happen to be living legends.

Dench tells a biting story of being ignored and treated like a feeble ghost...

It is intimate, a little salty, and most entertaining.

...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.
September 19, 2018
The movie is akin to sitting down with your friends and having a great chat. I'd easily have watched a longer cut of this.

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.

Can there be any sight more English than Dames Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Eileen Atkins and Joan Plowright sitting bickering in a garden overlooking the Sussex countryside?

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.
