Downton Abbey (PG) – 2019, UK, 122 mins
Director: Michael Engler
The silver has been shined. The carpets have been beaten. The dog has had its bone. Downton Abbey, beloved by millions around the world, is back, this time for a full 120 minutes in its first big screen outing.
We return to the Crawley family in 1927, who are moving with the times; telephones ringing, electric lights fitted – we even see Lady Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael) driving a car at one point. Exciting times indeed, especially as head of the house, Robert, Earl of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) has received a letter to announce that King George V (Simon Jones) and Queen Mary (Geraldine James) are coming to stay.
At this news, Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery), Downton Abbey’s other honourable daughter and house party-planner, swings into action, arranging a parade and dinner ahead of the royal sleepover. But when the house staff find out that they’ll be replaced by the King’s own choices brought in from London, they see red and decide to overthrow the rules. Anarchy reigns!
All fan-favourites are back for this feature-length ‘adventure’ (as Sophie McShera‘s Daisy exclaims), including Elizabeth McGovern, Joanne Froggatt, Imelda Staunton, Jim Carter, and the Dowager Countess/Granny herself, Dame Maggie Smith.
Doors open for coffee and tea at 10:00am. Film at 11:00am. All tickets £5 on the door.
