Buy at Amazon


Written by Julian Fellowes, the creator of Downton Abbey, this movie has the same attention to detail in depicting the everyday life of the family upstairs and the staff downstairs and is brought to life by an outstanding cast, including Maggie Smith, Helen Mirren, Jeremy Northam, Kristen Scott Thomas, and more. The plot (a murder, with almost everyone having a motive) is of somewhat secondary interest to the personal dramas surrounding it.
