PG-13 | | Drama, Music, Romance
Two sisters befriend a mysterious foreigner who washes up on the beach of their 1930's Cornish seaside village.
The idea to do Ladies in Lavender (2004) came to Charles Dance as he worked on the film Black and White (2002); he was reading a volume of short stories by William J. Locke entitled "Faraway Stories".
Ursula Widdington: Shhh!
Dorcas: Do you want tea?
Ursula Widdington: Shh! You'll wake him up! I think I'll wait until Janet gets up from her nap.
Dorcas: Well, she's up.
Ursula Widdington: Is she? She hasn't been long. All right, I'll be down directly.
Dorcas: He isn't gonna run off.
When Ursula is sitting on the beach the reflective shine in her modern stockings made of synthetic fiber is not what would be seen in 1936 cotton or woolen hosiery.
