Episode 66: Mrs. Henderson Presents (2005)

mrshendersonSocialite Mrs. Henderson is recently widowed and trying to figure out what to do with herself. After trying several things appropriate to her status, she ultimately decides to open a theatre in London in the late 1930s, and bring Moulin Rouge-style to London. Soon, the city is under seige from Nazi bombers, but the show must go on! Directed by Stephen Frears and based on a novel by Sheila van Damm, this film tells the story of an out-of-place society woman and her attempt to bring to the theatre something that the country sorely needs, especially after entering World War II! Starring Dame Judi Dench, Bob Hoskins, Will Young, and Christopher Guest, this semi-biographical film shines a light on this odd philanthropic outing which was the first of its kind in London.
