Notes: 
Storyline Heading
Based on the true story of Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who "temporarily" parked her van in Bennett's London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. What begins as a begrudged favor becomes a relationship that will change both their lives.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is a fact-based comedy-drama aimed squarely at older adults. Fans of Maggie Smith will definitely enjoy since it's more or less a one-woman show. The co-lead character is a gay man, and there is some mildly suggestive humor around this and some language, so parental discretion is advised though kids would not be interested anyhow.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good But for anyone who adores Maggie Smith—which is pretty much everyone these days—they will have quite a satisfying ride with this crusty grand dame behind the wheel.

NY Post Full Review
Above Average Smith is a delight — is she ever not? — in "The Lady in the Van,”... Smith's appeal, just, holds together a thin plot...

Rex Reed Full Review
Very Good ... a memorable and comedic slice of life that also redefines the word "eccentric.” It puts the tinsel on this year's holiday tree. ...the lady in the van grows on you, like a vine.
