I saw Ladies In Lavender recently, and I was going in expecting a boring film, but when I came out, I was pleasantly surprised. The film was...how do I put it...beautiful. Amazing direction. Charles Dance directs with a passion keeping everything important in shot at all times, the mise-en-scene was so mesmerizing. And the script he adapted from a real short story was amazing, just so touching. Brilliant performances from Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith. I smell BAFTAs for this film for categories like Best British Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Music, Best Cinematography and a Best actress award for either Dench or Smith. The film was fantastic! Come February, we'll see Awards for Ladies In Lavender from Worldwide Festivals! GOOD LUCK, LADIES IN LAVENDER!!
