In this British comedy gem, real-life couple and legendary actors Dame Judi Dench (Shakespeare in Love, Skyfall) and Michael Williams (Educating Rita) play two middle-aged misfits embarking on an unlikely romance.
Brainy translator Laura is introduced to shy landscape gardener Mike by Laura’s younger sister, who is intent on finding a mate for her spinsterish sibling. Awkward and rumpled, Mike fails to impress the prickly Laura. Still, he plucks up the courage to pursue her, and the two bumble through a courtship marked by insecurities, misunderstandings, and hilarious true-to-life situations. This collection includes all four series of the affable comedy that earned Dench one of her 10 BAFTA Awards for best actress.
