    In GOSFORD PARK, Robert Altman explores the English class system and master-servant relations via his preferred modus operandi of multiple characters and intertwining storylines, which he achieved so brilliantly in NASHVILLE. Featuring an all-star British ensemble cast, the film recalls both THE RULES OF THE GAME and THE REMAINS OF THE DAY, with a midpoint shift to an Agatha Christie whodunit. In November 1932, a phalanx of moneyed guests arrives for a weekend shooting party at the estate of Sir William McCordle (Michael Gambon) and Lady Sylvia (Kristin Scott Thomas). Mary (Kelly Macdonald), a fresh-faced, naive new maid accompanies the sniping Countess of Trentham (Maggie Smith), and is shown the ropes by the house's worldly head housemaid, Elsie (Emily Watson). While the masters engage in various financial and sexual intrigues upstairs, the world downstairs has its own curiosities--namely, the predatory valet to a Hollywood producer, Henry Denton (Ryan Phillippe), and the mysterious, cagey servant, Robert Parks (Clive Owen). Mary soon discovers that the image of servants living vicariously through their masters is a false one, and that the upstairs-downstairs worlds are often shockingly interwoven. With GOSFORD PARK, Altman delivers a fascinating, blackly comic look at the treacherous yet poignant gamesmanship between the classes.

  • PERFECT for those Jonesing for Downton Abbey

    Script was written by Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey. The same dynamics, a view above and below stairs in post WWI England, with a murder thrown in. It all takes place on a hunting weekend when the great country house is crowded. Much better character development than Downton Abbey (well, this is an Altman masterpiece, not a well-dressed soap opera). Wonderful performances. Love Clive Owen especially, and Maggie Smith is wonderful.

  • Loved this movie

    This movie is a murder mystery set in the countryside of England in the 1930's. Very interesting how life is so different after WWII. Beautiful setting, interesting bonus material, superb acting. A little bit sexy, too.

  • Gosford Park

    This movie keeps you guessing. I suspected who the killer might have been, and was right, but still enjoyed the film a lot. It may be a film directed by an American Robert Altman, but the cast was predominently English and they are spectacular.

  • Gosford Park

    This was a wildly entertaining who-done-it movie. It reminded me a little of "Murder on the Orient Express". It also reminded my husband and me that we had the board game, Clue, so we got it out and played a few games after viewing the movie. It was really enjoyable.
