TEA WITH THE DAMES

Four honoured British actresses together on the screen for the first time recount their lives in the spotlight. They are four of the most celebrated women in British film and theatre – but despite their towering reputations they have never been seen on screen together, until now. The actresses spent the weekend being filmed at Dame Joan’s retreat in Sussex as they talked about their experience of being women in theatre in the second half of the 20th century. Dame Maggie says there are roles around for older women in film, but reveals her frustration that Judi always gets there first! ‘These four great dames are friends with a long, shared history, and they often meet up and reminisce. We know them well but usually see them in character. To see these incredibly celebrated women talking naturally together felt like a fresh take.’ – Mark Bell, BBC executive.

Starring: Dame Judi Dench, Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Joan Plowright & Dame Eileen Atkins

Tea with the Dames releases New Zealand wide on Thursday the 7th of June.

THE BOOKSHOP

Based on Penelope Fitzgerald’s novel of the same name; ‘The Bookshop’ is set in 1959. Florence Green, a free spirited widow, puts grief behind her and risks everything to open up a bookshop – the first such shop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough, England. Fighting damp, cold and considerable local apathy she struggles to establish herself but soon her fortunes change for the better. By exposing the narrow minded local townsfolk to the best literature of the day, she opens their eyes thereby causing a cultural awakening in a town which has not changed for centuries. Her activities bring her a kindred spirit and ally, who is himself sick of the town’s stale atmosphere. But this mini social revolution soon brings her fierce enemies: she invites the hostility of the town’s less prosperous shopkeepers and also crosses Hardborough’s vengeful, embittered alpha female who is herself a wannabe doyenne of the local arts scene. When Florence refuses to bend to Gamart’s will, they begin a struggle not just for the bookshop but for the very heart and soul of the town.

Starring: Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy & Patricia Clarkson

NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE

Run time: Estimated 220 mins.

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.

1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.
