The Synopsis for Mrs Henderson Presents (2005) 720p

Recently widowed well-to-do Laura Henderson is at a bit of a loose end in inter-war London. On a whim she buys the derelict Windmill theatre in the West End and persuades impresario Vivian Van Damm to run it, despite the fact the two don't seem to get on at all. Although their idea of a non-stop revue is at first a success, other theatres copy it and disaster looms. Laura suggests they put nudes in the show, but Van Damm points out that the Lord Chamberlain, who licenses live shows in Britain, is likely to have something to say about this. Luckily Mrs Henderson is friends with him.

The Reviews for Mrs Henderson Presents (2005) 720p

Plucky comedy-drama with great musical numbersReviewed bystarcommandVote: 9/10

Judi Dench commands the screen as Mrs. Henderson, a sheltered but freethinking wealthy widow who buys an old theater. With the help of mercurial impresario Vivian Van Damm, played by Bob Hoskins, she eventually hits on a winning formula of musical revues with nude women in artistic poses.

Although most of the supporting characters are two-dimensional and used perfunctorily, this movie is highly enjoyable thanks to the splendid musical numbers and the indomitable Judi's performance, not to mention the gorgeous naked women.

The nudity is tastefully filmed (except for a brief full-monty shot of Bob Hoskins - ugh!), and there is no reason why this feature of the film should have gotten it an "R" rating in the U.S. Still, sadly, to many American minds, nudity in movies = sleaze. The ladies in this film are treated with respect and affection - as if it were just another way of making a living; an admirable attitude.

Fans of '30s music should see this by all means; several upbeat numbers will have your toes tapping and make your "heart beat the faster" (to quote Jerome Kern).

A snappy, if sometimes too-hurried pace, will keep your attention throughout. In terms of the energy level, it reminds me, oddly enough of those all-star propaganda musicals made in the '40s to boost morale during the war.

Laura Henderson: "We've had some good shows, but they're not daring enough. Let's get rid of the clothes."Reviewed byG_a_l_i_n_aVote: 7/10

A wealthy widow, Mrs. Laura Henderson (Judi Dench) buys an old London theater and comes up with the brilliant idea to turn it in a performance hall with the non-stop shows featuring nude girls during World War II. Bob Hoskins plays Vivian Van Damm, her business partner, who is as stubborn and opinionated as she is but somehow they manage to stay friends and to maintain the respect and admiration for each other. I liked this little movie very much. It's a well crafted dramedy with nice musical numbers, nudity, touching story, and it is based on the real events. Dench and Hoskins are marvelous together.


The Perfect Escape...Cinematic FunReviewed byjsemoviemanVote: 8/10

As the closing feature of the 2005 St. Louis International Film Festival, "Mrs. Henderson Presents" was shown to a nearly full theatre. Coming from the United Kingdom, the film is not a drama nor is it a comedy. "Mrs. Henderson Presents" is best described as a "dramedy" mixed with a musical. Judi Dench dives into her usual role with ease, playing Laura Henderson. As an upper-class widow left with heaps of money, she decides to purchase a theatre, which she names The Windmill. Through the love-hate relationship between Mrs. Henderson and her theatre manager (the terrific Bob Hoskins), they present the most revolutionary program in England: nude women on stage. "Mrs. Henderson Presents," constantly switches from drama to comedy, but is so skillfully directed by Stephen Frears that it maintains a fluid and graceful tone. This is a film that is told through the eyes of its main character, Laura Henderson, so an unrealistic sense of optimism exists. The message lies in the na?ve buoyancy Mrs. Henderson grabs from the continuous tragedy and sadness.

Stephen Frear's new film is truly heartbreaking and tragic, but ironically, is incredibly fun. In "Mrs. Henderson Presents," The Windmill Theatre stands tall like a knight in shining armor to the soldiers and crowds of England. It is also a pleasurable escape that certainly deserves more than one visit.
