#6 – Ladies in Lavender

colours-lavenderHa ha! Look at them there, in all that lavender. This is vintage Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith. Always getting in the lavender and then coming home smelling of lavender and you have to give them a bath. Anyway, this is a film about two old dames who befriend a “mysterious stranger” who washes up on a beach near their house. It turns out he’s a Polish violinist and not a paedophile as the term “mysterious stranger” implies.
