Ladies in Lavender...

I caught the last hour or so of the movie Ladies in Lavender and was reminded how much I liked it! Maggie Smith and Judi Dench were perfect as spinster ladies! The scenery was beautiful and the manners and set are swoon-worthy for anyone interested in England and/or the 1930's.

Here is the plot summary from IMDb.com

Two aging spinster sisters have their peaceable Cornwall existence disrupted in 1936 when they take a young Polish violinist into their care. After a particularly violent storm, Ursula and Janet Widington awake to find young man Andrea half-drowned and badly injured on the beach. They slowly discover that he is Polish with a gift for music as an accomplished violinist, hoping to find his way to America. But the village isn't used to visitors and everyone, with the exception of the sisters, is full of suspicions, especially when Andrea develops a friendship with a beautiful Russian woman vacationing nearby. Eventually, the two must make a choice between trying to keep their new charge for themselves or setting him free in the world.

I rented this movie just a few days ago, and it is wonderful! It was filmed in Cornwall, and the scenery is exquisite. It was so refreshing to see a movie that had no profanity, sex scenes, nudity or just plain vulgarity. Great movie, and I highly recommend it!

I enjoyed this movie so much when I viewed it. My daughter and I popped popcorn and sipped hot chocolate and enjoyed each other's company as well as the movie!
