Nothing Like a Dame
90 minute feature documentary, for BBC Two Arena and Kew Media.
This extraordinary film invites viewers to spend time with four of the most charismatic actresses of our times, as they look back at their long friendship, discuss their careers in theatre and film and even chew over some of the more personal challenges in their lives – from how they’ve juggled work and family to how they’re dealing with the vicissitudes of old age.
Nothing Like A Dame has a unique focus that can only come from great actors who are old friends who have lived through some of the most extraordinary dramatic landmarks of the 20th and 21st Centuries. All have received Dame-hoods in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the acting profession.
