Maggie Smith stars in the true story about an eccentric old woman named Mary Shepherd, who lived for 15 years in a battered van on the driveway of writer Alan Bennett's home.

The trailer teases some of Mary's hilarious one liners and other more sentimental moments such as receiving Christmas presents in her van. The film has been adapted by Alan Bennett himself, and directed by Nicholas Hytner (History Boys, Miss Saigon).

This is Maggie's third outing as Mary Shepherd, having previously played her in an 1999  theatrical adaptation and in 2009 in a Radio 4 production. 

The Lady in the Van also stars Jim Broadbent, Alex Jennings and  Frances de la Tour and will be released on November 13th 2015.
