Ladies In Lavender


Taking place in pre-war England, aging sisters Ursula (Judi Dench)and Janet (Maggie Smith) live peacefully in their cottage on the shore of Cornwall. One morning following a violent storm, the sisters spot from their garden a nearly-drowned man lying on the beach. They nurse him back to health, and discover that he is Polish. Communicating in broken German while they teach him English, they learn his name is Andrea (Daniel Bruhl) and that he is a particularly gifted violinist. His boat was on its way to America, where he is headed to look for a better life. It doesn't take long for them to become attached to Andrea, and they dote on him. Other townspeople, however, have their suspicions, especially when he befriends a German woman, Olga (Natascha McElhone).

Freddie Jones, Gregor Henderson-Begg, David Warner, Clive Russell, Richard Pears, Joanna Dickens.

I thought this was a lovely movie, not man's movie but a girlie movie, but Judi Dench and Maggie Smith were absolutely brilliant. I would recommend this to all the ladies out there!!!
