Great movie, with the screenplay written by Julian Fellowes (who wrote "Downton Abbey).

It's a close match to Remains of the Day!  I loved them both.

Wonderful movie.  And it's actually the forerunner of Downton Abbey. You'll recognize early versions of some of Fellowes's characters in Downton.  Carson especially, as I recall,, and there's Maggie Smith as a Countess. 

 

And the great Robert Altman's direction with brilliant camera work.  Great cast and he let some actors improvise.

Re: Gosford Park

Altman, Miren, Smith, Bates.....of course it's great.  Altman is after the complexity of class differences and delivers poignant dialogue.  Thanks for the reminder @Sweet_Serenity

Gosford Park is a wonderful movie.  It is written by Julian Fellows who collected an oscar for Best Original Screenplay for this movie.  Fellows also wrote Downton Abby and other great screenplays.
