A big screen adaptation of writer Alan Bennett’s iconic and celebrated memoir, directed by long-standing Bennett collaborator Nicholas Hytner.
The film tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular 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. Their unique story is funny, poignant and life-affirming.
Maggie Smith has been nominated for a BAFTA for Leading Actress, and a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. Maggie Smith won Best Actress at London's Evening Standard Film Awards.
