Gosford Park...
Yesterday was a film day: Film # 1. What a delightful, remarkable and thoroughly entertaining film this was. Gosford Park is an old fashioned whodunit mixing Upstairs, Downstairs, The Remains Of The Day and Murder On The Orient Express. Robert Altman was produced and directed an amazing ensemble cast of luminary British stars each giving outstanding performances. Head and shoulders above the rest was Constance, Countess of Trentham (Maggie Smith). She had and amazing array of Wildean oneliners and putdowns that reduced the audience to hysterics. Very bitchy, very funny.

I urge you to go and see this film if you haven't already. It's well worth it.
