The Remains Of The Day

4

And still to this day...

A year after Howard’s End, Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins were reunited with merchant/ivory for one of the British filmmaking team’s finest hours.

An eight-time Oscar nominee – it lost every one, largely to Schindler’s List – this adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s 1988 novel about a post-WWII butler (Hopkins) and the woman he loves (Thompson) is a masterly evocation of longing and regret.

Twenty years on, it’s lost none of its grace and subtlety, as emotions swirl under the polished surfaces.

Wonderful.
