Every element you expect to see, you see. The movie knows what it is and is on top of its game.
Sumptuous and lovely, this film is a fitting capper to the hugely popular series; it will positively thrill longtime fans. All the flowers are in the bouquet.

A glossy film with beautiful cinematography.
Excitement is high at Downton Abbey when the Crawley family learns that King George V and Queen Mary are coming to visit. But trouble soon arises when Mrs. Patmore, Daisy and the rest of the servants learn that the king and queen travel with their own chefs and attendants — setting the stage for an impromptu scheme and other shenanigans.
From 2010 to 2015 the Downton Abbey television series fascinated American audiences. Created by Julian Fellowes, the miniseries chronicled the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family in the early 20th century, after the Great War (1914-1918) and before the Great Depression.
Downton Abbey The Movie was made for devoted fans of the television series. Attention to detail regarding historical costumes and elegant gowns, dramatic moments between family members and staff, discreet contrasts between the lives of moneyed British aristocrats and the hard-working men and women below stairs, room furnishings, horse-drawn carriages, – all are here on a much larger screen.
