Giving nothing away our murderer is revealed from obscure clues presented early in the film and the unknown connections to each other only given at the end as expected.
It is a delightful little treasure.It does not try to be insightful, introspective or "deep" but it is just pure enjoyment .
A group of British aristocrats, American movie-makers, and their servants all converge at the country estate of Sir William McCordle for a weekend “shooting party.” McCordle , a self-made millionaire, is loathed by his wife, daughter, nearly all of his guests, and several of the servants. He spend much of his time during the weekend completely alienating nearly everyone he talks to. Sometime during the second evening, he turns up dead, the victim of a murder. Whodunit? That’s the job that Inspector Thompson, a slightly bumbling police Inspector, must find out…
“Gosford Park” is a marvelous film from start to finish. It clearly shows the great divide that existed between the British upper-class and their servants. It’s also a wonderful, witty murder mystery, filled with many moments of humor. It has many elements that derive from books written by Agatha Christie. Although there’s precious little action in “Gosford Park,” the writing and acting are so good, and the story so interesting, that the film remains fascinating throughout its two-hour runtime.
I originally purchased “Gosford Park” on DVD, but decided to upgrade to a high definition version of the film. As a result, I purchased a copy of the film on Blu-ray disc, which turned out to be an import from Canada. I found myself somewhat disappointed by the overall quality of the video and audio quality on the disc, although I must say that they are still vastly superior to what’s found on DVD. Recommended.
