COMPETITION: Win Maggie Smith film ‘The Lady in the Van’ on DVD or Blu-Ray!
It’s only been three months but we’re already desperately missing Downton and the Dowager Countess on our television screens. While we haven’t got a solution to that particular dilemma, we do have a great competition for fans of the two time Oscar winner’s comedy chops.
In new comedy-drama film The Lady in the Van, national treasure Smith portrays Miss Mary Shepherd, a mysterious woman who sets up home in the driveway of Londoner Alan Bennett (Alex Jennings). This “temporary” arrangement marks a turning point in both their lives when the two form an unlikely but lasting bond. The film is based on the real life experiences of writer Alan Bennett, who also created a play of the same name.
The Lady in the Van received rave reviews when first released in cinemas in 2015, scoring an impressive 93% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 109 reviews. Critics have praised Smith’s performance as the eccentric Miss Shepherd, with Variety’s Guy Lodge proclaiming it “one of the most tailor-made leading roles of her late career” and The Hollywood Reporter’s Frank Scheck declaring Smith “fully exploits the humour in her character’s bizarreness”.
To celebrate the release of The Lady in the Van on DVD and Blu-Ray on March 7, we’ve got five copies to give away to lucky TVGuide.co.uk users.
