Dream Date

Well, someone heard me. For years and years, I’ve dreamed of having tea with Judi Dench and Maggie Smith. Well, other’s wanted that, too. (And, they included Joan Plowright and Eileen Atkins, such a bonus).

Is it great television? No. Is it a great interview? No, not really. But, for 90 minutes you get to see and hear the old broads tell stories of the past. They’ve cut in a few scenes and images from archives, but that’s not really the point. The point is, you get to spend 90 minutes with the old broads. And, that’s worth the price of admission. I laughed out loud, got misty at a few moments, and longed to be there in the room with them, just soaking it all up. They show their human side as well as their diva abilities, too.

So glad this short piece was made.
