Watch: The Lady in the Van 2015 123movies, Full Movie Online – This movie tells the true story of Alan Bennett’s (Alex Jennings’) strained friendship with Miss Mary Shepherd (Dame Maggie Smith), an eccentric homeless woman who Bennett befriended in the 1970s before allowing her temporarily to park her Bedford van in the driveway of his Camden house. She stayed there for fifteen years. As the story develops, Bennett learns that Miss Shepherd is really Margaret Fairchild (died 1989), a former gifted pupil of pianist Alfred Cortot. She had played Chopin in a promenade concert, tried to become a nun, was committed to an institution by her brother, escaped, had an accident when her van was hit by a motorcyclist for which she believed herself to blame, and thereafter lived in fear of arrest..
Plot: The true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular 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.

Maggie Smith never disappoints
Maggie Smith never disappoints. She is such an amazing actress and continues to be in “The Lady in the Van.” Such an interesting true story of a very odd woman, this film is very endearing. The chemistry between Maggie Smith and Alex Jennings is very enjoyable to watch. Their relationship had a sort of codependency between them that was really fueled by a real caring for each other for different reasons. Director Nicholas Hytner did a great job of portraying the comedy found in this story. And that is due to the great acting of Maggie Smith, whom I cannot say enough about. Her recent Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture- Comedy was well deserved and although she didn’t take home the trophy, her performance is still one to be heavily applauded.

Some excellent acting here….though I did not love the film.
When “The Lady in the Van” begins, it says it’s MOSTLY based on a true story. How much liberty Alan Bennett took with the actual story is anyone’s guess, though apparently he DID allow a homeless and mentally ill woman to live in his driveway in her van. Why isn’t 100% clear, as she was smelly, nasty, argumentative and had little positive about her. Fortunately, Maggie Smith did a brilliant job playing her and was very believable.

As far as the story goes, there isn’t much more to it. In the London suburb of Camden in 1970, Mary (or Margaret) began to become a bit of a nuisance in town. Bennett felt sorry for her and slowly forged an odd but distant relationship with her. Years after her death, he wrote a play about it…and the film is based on that play. The story has many unusual and surreal plot devices, such as having TWO Bennetts interacting and arguing with each other during the story.

I think this film would appeal much more to older Brits than anyone else. That’s because in the UK, Bennett is a famous writer and actor and is loved and respected. Here in the US, most folks have never heard of him or his groundbreaking show, “Beyond the Fringe”. As for me, I found the film mildly interesting and I loved the performances….but the whole was not nearly as satisfying.
