The Lady In The Van (2016) – A Revisited Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
As seems to always be the way now, one of the best films of the previous year ends up being British and one that I miss on it’s release (See Pride and Sunshine On Leith).  It’s also simply amazing that Maggie Smith didn’t get at least an Oscar nomination being that she delivers what is probably one of the best performances of the year (and her career). This is Maggie Smiths film and she owns ever second she’s in.  That said the rest of the cast fair pretty well and the story, as quickly delivered as it is, is compelling and charming enough to make this one hell of a film overall.

Best Bit: Maggie Smith

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Buy

If You Liked this Try: Sunshine On Leith, Full Monty, Pride

8 out of 10 stars
