Downton Abbey fulfills all your dreams. Lush photography, stunning set design, sumptuous costumes, and a music score to die for. And the humungous cast is thrilling to watch on the big screen. Julian Fellow’s screenplay perfectly brings each character to an emotional arc that beautifully resonates with all audiences. You can forgive some of the soapy elements because we love these people and want to spend time with them. Entertainment to the max that is the perfect antidote to our turbulent climate. And don’t get me started about Maggie Smith, a world treasure.
