6. February 16, 2010 - Mrs. Henderson Presents (2005)

It's been snowing all day and last week I went on a little DVD buying spree, so today felt like a pretty good movie day. Laura Henderson was a saucy, daring woman and I can think of absolutely no one more well-suited to play her than Dame Judi Dench. Ever since she became M in GoldenEye, she's shown that she can play any and every role thrown at her. Though I could have lived without seeing Bob Hoskins naked, this true story of a theater in WWII-era London that made headlines by having its actresses naked onstage is funny and moving, especially when the Windmill Theater becomes a haven for Londoners during the Blitz. Definitely worth watching - besides, in what other movie are you going to hear the line "We must have British nipples"?
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
