Nicholas Hytner's new film, out on 13 November, charts the stage relationship between playwright Alan Bennett and the titular lady in the van, who actually was an elderly woman living in a van parked in his driveway for 15 years. The film is adapted by Alan Bennett from his own 1999 stage play and 2009 BBC Radio 4 drama both of the same name, and is a 'mostly true' story. Maggie Smith stars as the lady, with Alex Jennings as Bennett.
Everyman Hampstead will be hosting an exclusive live Q&A with director Nicholas Hytner and producer Kevin Loader on 14th November in Hampstead, and several other cinemas will be broadcasting the session via satellite after a screening.
