Ladies in LavenderTwo aging sisters befriend a mysterious foreigner who washes up on the beach of their 1930's Cornish seaside village. Although one of them feels an unfamiliar spark of infatuation for the handsome young musician, propriety suggests the attraction must remain unspoken.

Critic Reviews of "Ladies in Lavender"Orlando SentinelJuly 08, 2005
It's a British period piece, full of the sylvan Cornish coast and countryside, vintage motorcars, steam threshers and sensibilities. Pity they left out a compelling plot.Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionJune 04, 2005
A fascinating and involving chamber piece for two superb actresses.Philadelphia InquirerJune 02, 2005
A wistful little thing about regret, jealousy and love.Washington PostMay 27, 2005
Under Dance's sure hand, and the even surer performances of Smith and Dench, who know that underplaying an emotion often increases its punch, the film is a small study in the dignity of letting go.Washington PostMay 27, 2005
A funny, civilized little romantic drama in which Smith co-stars with the equally estimable Judi Dench.Toronto StarMay 27, 2005
As long as Dench or Smith is on the screen there's plenty to absorb one's interest.Film Journal InternationalMarch 01, 2007
Smith is rather wasted...Perhaps if the actresses had exchanged roles, this pallid palette would have had more emotional color.european-films.netMay 02, 2006
One wonders how much of their performances came from Dance's direction and how much came from the actresses themselves, but what counts is what is there on the screen, which is more than satisfactory.Laramie Movie ScopeSeptember 19, 2005
Filled with wonderful music and magnificent, subtle acting. The story, however, goes nowhere at a glacial pace.Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)August 12, 2005
Maggie Smith and Judi Dench are a great duo, but the film isn't so great.The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)August 09, 2005
Remaining locked in Ursula and Janet's fantasies, Ladies in Lavender evades complexity with monomania.Capital Times (Madison, WI)July 28, 2005
Dance is so tentative and tasteful in his direction that he never draws out the underlying emotions beneath the polite exteriors.
