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, Sir William McCordle (Sir Michael Gambon). Getting on in years, William has become a benefactor to many of his relatives and friends. As the weekend goes on, secrets are revealed, and it seems that everyone, above stairs and below, wants a piece of William and his money, but how far will they go to get it?

Trivia

In an attempt to keep the dialogue in scenes feeling more natural, producer and director Robert Altman read the script as little as possible so he wouldn't know the characters' lines. He relied heavily on script supervisors to ensure that all the important beats in scenes were met, consulting with them after each take. See more »

The kind of movie that takes it time and well worth it
4 November 2018 | by jortegasaSee all my reviews

To say that this movie takes it time to not only set the mood but to let you into the world that it lives in, is an understatement. I just love this movie. It know it has a lot to say and it doesn't rush it. It is not for everyone but for those who want a murder mystery with a nice twist, this is one that must be watched to be loved
