Synopsis:
Oscar Winners Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson star in this extraordinary and moving story of blind devotion and repressed love. Hopkins stars as Stevens, a dedicated English butler to Lord Darlington, beautifully played by James Fox. Thompson stars as the estate's housekeeper, a high-spirited, strong-minded young woman who watches the goings-on upstairs with horror. Despite her apprehensions, she and Stevens gradually fall in love, though neither will admit it, and only give vent to their charged feelings via fierce arguments.

English classic - The Remains of the Day review by Swambi

Spoiler Alert
23/08/2005

The story of the perfect butler - and his mistakes. Fantastic filming, fantastic scenery, totally believable. It examines a lot of moral issues, and you get drawn progressively into the romantic involvement which is meticulously acted out.
