Community Reviews

If you like "Downton Abbey"

Those who liked "Downton Abbey" will also enjoy this murder mystery set in the early 20th century in a British manor house. The mystery reveals much about the British class system and its hypocracy.

A Little Confusing

Good movie but so many characters it was a little hard to follow. A second viewing may be needed to keep all the characters straight. A good mystery and worth watching.

Worth watching a second time.

I really enjoyed this movie even more the second time I watched. A great movie that shows all the goings on behind the scenes during a weekend hunting party in the English countryside.

Excellent Movie

This is a great movie. Like every Altman movie, there's 10 million characters, but each one is perfect for their role and does an incredible job. The standouts for me are Helen Mirren, Bob Balaban and Kelly McDonald. And probably Maggie Smith, what a fabulous snob. Oh, and Stephen Fry. He's a great bumbling detective, falling over with his own oblivious self-importance. He never fails to put his foot in it. He's the best!

This is a classic locked room-style British mystery in which a collection of people, each with their own secrets and grudges and issues with the head of the household gather at a secluded country manor house. When the head of the household is murdered, there's a lot of motives among the guests and the servants.

The story unfolds beautifully, the pacing is perfect. Even with a huge cast, Altman leaves just enough time to establish and draw out each character, even the minor ones, like the scullery maid and her secret affairs. Besides the excellent characterization, the complex plot is well-written, perfectly executed and completely and totally worth it. This movie is an experience every time you watch it.
