A good story and and excellent film
7 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched this several times now and I enjoy it more with each viewing. The acting was excellent all around with some of the minor parts (Boggis and Tweedle) being brief parts played with real depth. A very good cast with some famous performers and the younger actors holding their own.

I was especially moved by the films treatment of death and Maggie Smith's (Mrs. Oldknow's)explanation of how a loss can be accepted if someone is truly loved.

I cannot think of anything Julian Fellowes has done that has not been excellent (except possibly overdoing it in The Scarlet Pimpernel). His work is almost a guarantee of excellence.

Although the film is emotional, it is not contrived. I think this is a good film that works both for children and adults.

I highly recommend it.
