Gospa s kombijem - The Lady in the Van

Slovenski opis filma:

Resnična zgodba o gospodični Shepherd (Maggie Smith), ekscentrični ženski nejasnega porekla, ki je svoj pokvarjeni kombi "začasno" parkirala na dovoz pisatelja Alana Bennetta v Londonu – potem pa je v njem živela naslednjih petnajst let.Maggie Smith, prva dama legendarne serije "Downtown Abbey" ter dvakratna dobitnica oskarja, vnovič upodobi eno svojih najbolj slovitih vlog, nenavadni lik gospodične Shepherd – v komični priredbi lastnih spominov Alana Bennetta in njegove priznane odrske uprizoritve, tokrat v obliki celovečerca. Bennettova pripoved je osnovana na resnični zgodbi o gospodični Shepherd, ekscentrični ženski nejasnega porekla, ki je svoj pokvarjeni kombi "začasno" parkirala na njegov dovoz v Londonu – potem pa je v njem živela naslednjih petnajst let. Kar se začne kot nejevoljna Bennettova usluga čudaški ženski, se sčasoma razvije v nenavaden odnos, ki povsem spremeni njuni življenji. Film so posneli na ulici ter v hiši, kjer sta Bennett in gdč. Shepherd živela vsa tista leta. Priznani režiser Nicholas Hytner še enkrat združi moči s scenaristom Bennettom ("The Madness of King George", "The History Boys") in na velika platna skupaj prinašata ganljivo, pomenljivo in navdihujočo zgodbo.

Originalni opis filma:

The Lady in the Van tells the true story of Alan Bennett's strained friendship with Miss Mary Shepherd, an eccentric homeless woman whom Bennett befriended in the 1970s before allowing her temporarily to park her Bedford van in the driveway of his Camden home. She stayed there for 15 years. As the story develops Bennett learns that Miss Shepherd is really Margaret Fairchild (died 1989), a former gifted pupil of the pianist Alfred Cortot. She had played Chopin in a promenade concert, tried to become a nun, was committed to an institution by her brother, escaped, had an accident when her van was hit by a motorcyclist for which she believed herself to blame, and thereafter lived in fear of arrest.
