Story


Set in picturesque coastal Cornwall, in a tight-knit fishing village in the 1930's, "Ladies in Lavender" boasts the cream of British acting talent as Oscar and BAFTA award-winners Dame Judi Dench ("Iris," "Chocolat," recent "James Bond" films) and Dame Maggie Smith ("Gosford Park," "Tea with Mussolini," the "Harry Potter" films) play the leading roles of sisters Ursula (Dench) and Janet Widdington (Smith).

Rising German talent and award-winning Daniel Bruhl ("Goodbye Lenin!") plays Andrea. A gifted young Jewish violinist from Krakow, Andrea is bound for America when he is swept overboard by a fierce storm. When the Widdington sisters discover the handsome and mysterious stranger on the beach below their house, they nurse him back to health. However, the presence of the musically talented young man disrupts the peaceful lives of Ursula and Janet and the community in which they live.
