Based on the hit TV show, Downton Abbey continues to build on its success. It is clear that this movie was made predominantly for the fans. If you loved the TV show then it is a safe bet to say you’ll enjoy the film. The saga of the Crawley family and their servants continues as they prepare for the Queen and King’s arrival in Downton. Non-fans will still be able to appreciate the great dialogue and excellent performances by Maggie Smith and Hugh Bonneville. The reviews for the film have been a mixed bag with The Guardian giving it 3/5, saying ‘it is at all times ridiculous – but I have to admit, quite enjoyable’. The New York Post really disliked it, giving it 1.5/5, ‘two thumbs Downton’. However, The Mirror saw it in a different light, giving it 4/5 and stating, ‘standing on the strong foundations of the series, the filmmakers sensibly resit the temptation to do anything other than build on their established crowd-pleasing formula’. Downton Abbey is in cinemas now.
