From time to time four old friends, all extraordinary actresses, meet up in the English countryside to gossip, to remember and to laugh. For once they let the cameras in... Nothing Like A Dame is a unique celebration of the lives and careers of four of our most iconic actresses: Dame Eileen Atkins, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Joan Plowright and Dame Maggie Smith. All four have gone from being fledgling actresses in the 1950s to acting royalty. They've watched each other's careers grow and bloom and have celebrated life's ups and downs together. Nothing Like A Dame invites you to spend time with these acting legends as they talk about their lives and their professional experiences across theatre, television and film. Directed by Roger Michell (My Cousin Rachel, Notting Hill), it also includes a range of astonishing archive material. Candid, funny, caustic, irreverent, poignant and utterly engrossing, this unmissable film is proof that there is truly nothing like a Dame...




  • Wonderful....but pricey

    By Yawenaj
    This is a truly delightful documentary with some living legends. Highly recommended, a 5* viewing but at £9.99 it's a little bit dear for 87 mins and zero features. I think £4.99 would have been a fairer price. Add it to your Wish List but my advice would be to wait till it goes in a sale.
