Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Ken Bakely @ Film Pulse
    • Excerpt: The film’s greatest asset is its ability to convey the lively spirit of the conversations without feeling selective or artificially emphasizing points, beyond spare bursts of archival footage or the occasional question posed from [director Roger] Michell himself.
  • Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality and Practice
    • Excerpt: Entertaining conversations among four grand Dames of the English theatre and film scene about their public and private lives.
  • Courtney Howard @
    • Excerpt: While no one actually drinks any tea in director Roger Michell’s film, the women profiled metaphorically spill the tea on their co-stars, each other and the industry at large.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: Come sit next to Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Joan Plowright, and Eileen Atkins and eavesdrop on their witty banter, amiable swearing, and grand tales of their stage and film careers.
  • Jared Mobarak @
    • Excerpt: That’s not to say the whole isn’t still extremely entertaining with their wealth of humor and priceless anecdotes. It simply never quite delivers what it appears to want to sell.
  • [New] | Júlio Cézar Rodrigues @ Megalomania Cultural [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: The documentary is charming, but a little shallow”.
