Studio: IFC

Four legends of British stage and screen–Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Eileen Atkins, and Dame Joan Plowright—get together and share some tea in the not ironically titled Tea with the Dames.

The winners of zillions of Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, and BAFTAs, the ladies are also longtime friends who hereby “invite you” to join them for a weekend in the country as they catch up with one another, reminisce, and share their candid, delightfully irreverent thoughts on everything from art to aging to love to a life lived in the spotlight.

It’s a lot of fun and, as can be seen in this lively 90 minutes, there is nothing like a dame…

It’s directed by BAFTA award winner Roger Michell (Le Week-End).
