Arrow Academy

At least twenty fine actors and stars make Robert Altman’s period piece about a party in a big English country house into a gala occasion. The show is also a fascinating entree into a classed world of masters and servants. The drama of manners could also be described as a mystery who-dunnit. Either way, we’re floored by excellent work from a stellar cast: Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith, Eileen Atkins, Emily Watson, Clive Owen, Michael Gambon, Alan Bates, Derek Jacobi, Kristin Scott Thomas, Jeremy Northam, Bob Balaban, Kelly Macdonald. On Blu-ray from Arrow Academy.
