Movie Review by Movie Addict
March 15th, 2007

Superb British drama

Eight Oscar nominations! Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson in outstanding roles. This was one of the best films of 1993. It just had the bad luck to be going up against Schindler's List or it would have run the table.

Hopkins was the quintessential Butler. Cool as a cucumber. No emotions at all. Thomson, as the Housekeeper, was in love with him and he didn't know how to deal with it. He never was able to express himself. This is a cool love story about unrequited love and loss. And, being a Merchant/Ivory film, you know that the set, the cinematagraphy, the casting, the direction, the screenplay, everything will be first rate.

The supporting cast is outstanding, including the always enjoyable Hugh Grant and Christopher Reeve in one of his last roles before the accident that paralyzed him.
