Downton Abbey, has returned four years after its series finale, with the entire original cast to tell one more tale from the stately Yorkshire manor. This time, the King and Queen are coming for a visit, which is a perfect capsule tale that allows fan-favorites upstairs and down to put on a show. The film picks up in 1927, and finds the exceedingly charming cast almost exactly as we left them. Lady Mary is running the show, Tom Branson is still (quietly) an Irish republican, Lady Edith is very much Edith, Mrs. Hughes is handling everything, Anna is the perfect mix of cleverness and compassionate, Daisy and Mrs. Patmore never miss a beat with their patter, and Mr. Molesley is exceptional comic relief. But there is a whiff of revolution in the air, as the royal visit stirs up some budding anti-monarchist feelings among the staff, and even those upstairs are straining against the societal restraints placed upon them.—Paste“Satisfying and enjoyable, especially for Anglophiles upstairs or down.” KDHX“Fans of the long-running series will feel like they’ve slipped into a welcome warm bath.” The Globe and MailCast Matthew Goode, Tuppence Middleton, Maggie Smith
