Jennifer Jason Leigh,
Set in the 1930s, the story takes place in an old-fashioned English country house where a weekend shooting party is underway.

As the weekend goes on, secrets are revealed, and it seems everyone, above stairs and below, wants a piece of William and his money, but how far will they go to get it? Written by

Sorry for what?
I'm supposed to get the fire lit without waking you.
Why does everyone treat me as if I were one of these stupid snobs? I spent half the week downstairs with all of you.

Excellent movie about an "idea." The murder mystery is itself a "MacGuffin" to the central question of some of the characters' inter-relationships. This film is deserving of its Academy Award and nominations !! Watch it twice since it bears more insights on a closer viewing; it is full of "inside" entertainment for those who love the films of that era and the pop music genre of the 1930's. Truly an ensemble effort with some excellent work by hardworking veterans and young British geniuses.
