Hit or Miss

Gosford Park

Gosford Park. I’m glad I waited to watch this film on DVD, because I would have been lost without the subtitles (so many characters! They should have included a family tree). And if the mystery elements had been a little stronger, it would have made a good basis for a series about a maid/sleuth.

Seeing the interaction between the upstairs and downstairs inhabitants makes me want to watch The Edwardian Country House when it comes to PBS.

I’m so glad you said that. I thought it was a beautiful film, but I had friends laugh at me when I complained there were just too many characters! Ack! ::rushes to buy DVD::
