Roger Michell helms a delightful documentary celebrating British acting legends Dames Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Joan Plowright and Eileen Atkins. Friends since the 1950s, this is the first time all four have appeared on screen together, taking tea at Plowright’s country home to reminisce about their long careers.

Can there be any sight more English than Dames Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Eileen Atkins and Joan Plowright sitting bickering in a garden overlooking the Sussex countryside?
