Ladies in Lavender

I saw this movie with my father on Friday night.  We took a lot of intermissions for laundry, bathroom breaks, getting into pajamas.  There were some sad and poignant moments in the film, but there was also a lot of clever humor.  To quote my father, "This is a good movie. I would give it four or five stars."  The one thing I did not completely understand is where the title comes from; if anyone knows and would like to share, that would be great.  After watching the film, I wished that I could paint or play the violin.  I just feel like I would be so much cooler.

Which Screen? It is not in the theaters anymore, so small screen will have to do.  However, the charm of the film will come through on any size screen.

Hi, I went to the imdb link you provided and one of the comments there explains the title. Something about packing linens in lavender has the same effect as mothballs... Ladies in Mothballs wouldn't have made a good title!
