screening as part of the LITERALLY FILM – Book Film Fest season
Nicholas Hytner (2015) UK, 1h 44mins, 12A
Adapted from the ‘The Lady in the Van’ by Alan Bennett
“One seldom was able to do her a good turn without some thoughts of strangulation.”
The film tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd – played brilliantly by Maggie Smith – a woman of uncertain origins who ‘temporarily’ parked her van in Bennett’s London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. Funny, poignant and life-affirming.
