  • UK release: 6 May 2016

Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep) is a wealthy, cultured New York socialite, who insists on performing as a soprano in spite of a total inability to sing.

The Lady in the Van

  • 3 stars
  • 2015

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Nicholas Hytner
  • Written by: Alan Bennett
  • Cast: Maggie Smith, Alex Jennings, Dominic Cooper, James Corden
  • UK release: 13 November 2015

Writer Alan Bennett (Jennings, uncanny) allows cantankerous drifter Miss Shepherd (Smith) to make his Camden Town driveway her home for 15 years. Bennett's screenplay of this 'autobiopic' is a delight, showing how human kindness can be hilariously begrudging, but some of its conceits can be distracting.
