The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Flagstaff premiere of “Tea With the Dames” on Wednesday, Oct. 10 as part of the festival’s monthly Flagstaff Cinema Series. There will be one screening of the film at 7:00 p.m. at Harkins Flagstaff 16 Theatres.

What happens when four legends of British stage and screen get together?

Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Eileen Atkins, and Dame Joan Plowright are among the most celebrated actresses of our time, with scores of iconic performances, decades of wisdom, and innumerable Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, and BAFTAs between them. They are also longtime friends who hereby invite you to join them for a weekend in the country as they catch up with one another, reminisce, and share their candid, delightfully irreverent thoughts on everything from art to aging to love to a life lived in the spotlight.

Join these stage and screen legends as they talk about their lives: their experience in theatre, TV and cinema and the memories they have from when they were bright young things right up to the present day.

Bursting with devilish wit and whip-smart insights, “Tea With The Dames” is a remarkable opportunity to spend time in the company of four all-time greats — up close and unfiltered.

“Wonderfully entertaining and celebratory. And brutally funny!” — The Guardian

A representative from the NAU Philosophy Department and Philosophy in the Public Interest will lead a discussion following the film screening.
