“Tea with the Dames” Screen Stars Reminisce in Documentary Slated for January 15 from IFC

IFC Films has announced the release of Tea with the Dames (DVD: $24.95), slated for January 15. What happens when four legends of British stage and screen get together? Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Eileen Atkins, and Dame Joan Plowright are among the most celebrated actresses of our time, with scores of iconic performances, decades of wisdom, and many Oscars, Tonys, Emmys and BAFTAs between them. Directed by Roger Michell, Tea with the Dames features the longtime friends as they invite viewers to join them for a weekend in the country as they catch up with one another, reminisce, and share their candid, delightfully irreverent thoughts on everything from art to aging to love to a life lived in the spotlight.
