Tea with the Dames trailer still

IFC Films/YouTube



Four of the greatest actresses to ever grace the stage are now letting us join them for tea and a trip to the country.

IFC Films released a trailer for "Tea with the Dames" on Monday, and it showcases what happens when Dames Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Eileen Atkins, and Joan Plowright get together. In a word, it's delightful. The four have long been friends, and their chemistry is palpable.

Directed by Roger Michell, the documentary digs into their personal lives as well as their friendship, and they make it funny. At one point, Michell asks the women about aging, and Dench joking tells him, "F--k off, Roger!" At another, Smith fields a question about working with her husband by saying, "I'm just trying to think which one."

Watch below. It makes us think of "Golden Girls" -- but British.



"Tea with the Dames" opens in theaters Sept. 21, and then will be available on demand starting Sept. 27.
