Gosford Park (2001)

My wife and I watched Gosford Park (2001) which is an English movie about nobility and financial infighting in a Lord's family. It's a murder mystery too so this makes it interesting in a completely different way also. If you haven't seen it and liked watching Downton Abbey you might like this movie too. However, the difference is this takes place in the 1930s on an Estate with Servants in the 1930s during a hunting party weekend where the men at least are there to shoot pheasants with shotguns. Below it says it is a comedy but if it is it should be seen as a Black comedy in many ways. For example, the actor who plays the piano (who is also supposed to be a Hollywood actor who sees Greta Garbo) If you can put the English subtitles on so you can fully understand the words and maybe that might be the funniest thing of all about this movie.
