Written and directed by Charles Dance, Ladies in Lavender is set in 1936, and tells the tale of two aging spinster sisters (Dames Maggie Smith and Judi Dench) whose peaceable Cornwall existence is disrupted when they take a young Polish violinist (Daniel Brühl) into their care (Source: TCMdB).
I will readily admit that this film is not for every especially given its somewhat pedantic pace; but exercise a little patience. The acting is so well delivered that it made up for any moments of drifting “boredom” (for lack of a better word).
The film also features a stellar supporting cast:
- Anjelica Huston
- Michael Gambon
- Miriam Margoyles
- Natascha McElhone
- David Warner
