Dame Maggie Smith stars in the charming and funny The Lady In The Van.The 2-time Oscar winner and star of Downton Abbey, Dame Maggie Smith plays the unforgettable Miss Shepherd in Alan Bennett’s big-screen comedic adaptation of his own memoir and stage play.
Based on a true story, Miss Shepherd was a woman of uncertain origins who 'temporarily' parked her van in Bennett’s London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years.
What began as a reluctant favour became a relationship that would change both their lives. Filmed on the street and in the house where Bennett and Miss Shepherd lived for all those years, acclaimed director Nicholas Hytner reunites with Bennett (The Madness of King George, The History Boys) to bring this funny, poignant, and life-affirming story to the screen.
