Storyline

Set in the 1930s, the story takes place in an old-fashioned English country house where a weekend shooting party is underway. The story centers on the McCordle family, particularly the man of the house, William McCordle. Getting on in years, William has become benefactor to many of his relatives and friends. 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?

Trivia

The wallpaper in Constance Trentham's bedroom is hand-painted, imported from France. Even for this very small set, it would have cost the filmmakers $18,000; however, the manufacturer donated it to the production. Even so, the owners of the house demanded that the walls were re-papered to their liking (to match their bedding) after the production was over. See more »

Goofs

When Mrs. Croft and the cook are counting the knives, we see servants bringing the candelabra from the dining room down the stairs. Then we see the gentlemen in the dining room, where the candelabra are still lit. See more »

Quotes

Constance: Mabel is so clever to pack light. Why should one wear a different frock each evening, we're not in a fashion parade.

Not for everyone
17 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wish I was more surprised that there are so many negative comments, but I'm not. This is not American Pie. It's a beautifully acted and very well written film for adults with an attention span of more than 5 minutes. Concentrate, it's worth it. I don't give 10's easily. This is a 10!
