A British director with an astoundingly eclectic body of work, Stephen Frears (MY BEAUTIFUL LAUNDRETTE, HIGH FIDELITY) has never made the same film twice. With MRS. HENDERSON PRESENTS, Frears has taken several genres--including costume drama and the gently naughty Brit-com (à la THE FULL MONTY or CALENDAR GIRLS) and crafted a breezy but affecting entertainment that hides a surprising emotional heft in its third act. Based on the true story of London’s Windmill Theater, the film stars Judi Dench as Laura Henderson, a widowed society woman in the 1930s who purchases the abandoned West End venue as a means to help her pass the time. She enlists experienced stage producer Vivian Van Damm (Bob Hoskins, who also produced the film) to aid her in creating Paris-inspired vaudeville revues--which break taboos in the staid English society of the time by featuring artfully posed nude women amidst the musical shenanigans. The shows become wildly successful with soldiers during WWII, but the horror of the Blitz brings trauma to the intrepid stage troupe. 2005
