Maggie Smith is Miss Shepherd in the big screen version of The Lady in the Van. Based on the book, and stage play, of the same name by Alan Bennett. It’s a story of friendship and confusion of the years of being together, and apart. What could become a great British film. Then again, only time will tell if that prediction will come true!
Lady in the Van 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.
Parking at UK cinemas November 2015
