Gosford Park

I watched Gosford Park yesterday. I taped it when it was on Starz. I think I had seen some of this movie before, but not all of it. It has Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Kristin Scott Thomas, Camilla Rutherford, Charles Dance, Geraldine Somerville, Jeremy Northam, Bob Balaban, James Wilby, Claudie Blakley, and Ryan Phillippe in it.

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, guests arrive at an English country house for a shooting party. The host is William McCordie and the guests all have secrets. One guest was posing as a valet, but he really is an actor. Then suddenly William is killed. He was actually killed “twice.” He was poisoned and then stabbed by two different people. One of the maids learns who the killers are.

I did like this movie. Next week I’m watching Picture Perfect Mysteries: Dead Over Diamonds.

One thought on “Gosford Park

  1. Funny. I just watched this yesterday. I was quite pleased with it. Lots of familiar actors and Ryan Phillipe was so young lol. Murder Mysteries are exciting and I enjoyed the 1920/1930’s costumes too. Some good twists. I used to work
    In a bookstore for students and this was often on the list for some English courses.
