Our April film will be The Lady in the Van.
Dame Maggie Smith stars in Alan Bennett's adaptation of his own memoir and stage play. It is based on the true story of Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who "temporarily" parked her van in Bennett's London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. What begins as a begrudged favour becomes a relationship that will change both their lives. Filmed on the street and in the house where Bennett and Miss Shepherd lived all those years. Directed by Nicholas Hytner, former director of the National Theatre.
