Alan Bennett's story is based on the true story of Miss Shepherd (played by a magnificent Maggie Smith), a woman of uncertain origins who "temporarily" parked her van in Bennett's London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. What begins as a begrudged favor becomes a relationship that will change both their lives. Filmed on the street and in the house where Bennett and Miss Shepherd lived all those years, acclaimed director Nicholas Hytner reunites with iconic writer Alan Bennett (The Madness of King George, The History Boys) to bring this rare and touching portrait to the screen.

Best known for his work in film and television, Academy Award nominated George Fenton is one of the UK's most successful composers, writing scores for over 100 films and collaborating with some of the most influential filmmakers. He works regularly with the BBC Concert Orchestra and The Philharmonia Orchestra, both of whom performed on the score for this 2015 film The Lady In The Van.

About his work on film, Fenton said: "The Lady In The Van was a unique experience for me, writing a score for a story about someone I actually know (Alan Bennett) and someone I knew or at least met (Mary Shepherd ). The film not only tells an extraordinary story but also celebrates an extraordinary character - her triumphs and failings. I hope the music in some way belongs to her because music was at her heart. She was a musician, albeit a cantankerous one. In the score I've tried to show both sides. A great opportunity for me certainly and a special occasion thanks to the beautiful playing of the Philharmonia Orchestra The BBC Concert Orchestra and the brilliant pianist Clare Hammond."
