Downton Abbey: The Movie

2019 ‧ 122 min ‧ PG ‧ CC, DVS

The worldwide phenomenon Downton Abbey becomes a grand motion picture event, as the beloved Crawleys and their intrepid staff prepare for the most important moment of their lives. A royal visit from the King and Queen of England will unleash scandal, romance and intrigue that will leave the future of Downton hanging in the balance.

This is Julian Fellowes’ Avengers;
they can assemble over and over,
and there will always be
enough tea cakes to go around.
