Gosford Park DVD Review


Good Morning Lovelies,

Before there was Downton Abbey, there was Gosford Park! Julian Fellowes’ 2002 hit British film with an all-star cast, who know how to take a period drama to new heights.

When a weekend in the countryside leads to a murder, a host of aristocrats, celebrities and servants must work together in Cluedo fashion to find out what or who caused it.

Starring Charles Dance, Helen Mirren and Dame Maggie Smith and a whole host more, this drama, set in 1932, uses clever plot twists and a fantastic ensemble to give audiences more than they may be expecting.

Fellowes always knows how to bring the school factor and this feature includes just that. Lots in fact. With some of his finest script work on display, Gosford Park cements the talents Fellowes has at making a feature length film and provides comfort for those awaiting the Downton Abbey film.

For a piece made over 15 years ago, it still feels relevant. It is a piece that could be shown on TV today and people would still sit down and watch with joy. That is when you know a feature really can stand the test of time.

There so I am giving it...
