About this Film

Alan Bennett's Diaries Live

ODEON says...
An unmissable live event that will take a candid look into the mind of Alan Bennett, Britain’s best-loved writer, who, at 82, shows no signs of slowing down.  The event will include a screening of 'Alan Bennet's Diaries', a new film about the writer, followed by an exclusive Q&A with Alan with from his local library in Primrose Hill. 

Inspired by his acerbic and often hilarious diaries, the film shows Bennett as he’s never been seen before - following him to New York, the scene of his early triumph in Beyond the Fringe to the village in Yorkshire he calls home. 

Intimate encounters, filmed over the course of a year, reveal a writer who is bemused by his own popularity and is still as angry and irreverent in his 80s as he was in his 20s.
