Gosford Park - DVD
This movie was beautifully filmed and cast. Jeremy Northram as Ivor Novello, popular British composer, singer, songwriter in the twenties, Maggie Smith as the malicious Countess Trentham, Helen Murrin and Clive Owen just to name a few. The whole movie was really well done. Especially if you like these kinds of period pieces, which I do.
The Academy Award winner for Best Original Screenplay, Gosford Park is a whodunit as only director Robert Altman could do it. As a hunting party gathers at the country estate, no one is aware that before the weekend is over, someone will be murdered - twice! The police are baffled but the all-seeing, all-hearing servants know that almost everyone had a motive. This critically-acclaimed murder mystery features a who's who of celebrated actors. With a diverse cast of characters - all with something to hide - it'll keep you guessing right to the surprising end. Gosford Park proves that murder can be such an inconvenience.
