Gosford Park (2001) short review


A great Robert Altman — who is known for his meandering, five billion characters — movie that does a fabulous job of portraying life above and below stairs in a 1930s English aristocratic mansion. Everyone looks fabulous, especially Kristin Scott Thomas as the mistress of the house and Geraldine Somerville as her sister.

      It’s SO great. I just wish I could find a subtitled version because I hate that some of the dialogue isn’t quite catch-able!
