The year is 1927, and the King and Queen are coming to Downton. That’s the latest news that sets both upstairs and downstairs abuzz, and the family and the staff soon find themselves at odds with the royal entourage, and the royals themselves under threat from an assassin. As with the beloved TV show, the family and the staff each have various and sundry problems to solve, difficulties to triumph over, and challenges to face, and it’s all done oh-so-properly. Whether you’ve watched religiously, or are just ready to start your love affair with the Abbey now, this is a film that you can enjoy in its own right and on its own merits.
Downton Abbey opens Friday, October 18, and plays at 7:30 Friday, 5:00 & 7:30 Saturday & Sunday, and 7:30 Monday-Thursday.
