Storyline

Set in the 1930s, the story takes place in an old-fashioned English country house where a weekend shooting party is underway. The story centers on the McCordle family, particularly the man of the house, William McCordle. Getting on in years, William has become benefactor to many of his relatives and friends. As the weekend goes on, secrets are revealed, and it seems everyone, above stairs and below, wants a piece of William and his money, but how far will they go to get it?

Trivia

Ivor Novello (played by Jeremy Northam) was a well known London matinée idol, singer and composer who starred in Alfred Hitchcock's silent classic The Lodger (1927). He had a good voice and starred again in the successful "talkie" remake The Phantom Fiend (1932). In Gosford Park (2001), set in November 1932, Countess Constance (Maggie Smith) refers to The Lodger as a flop. See more »

Atmosphere reigns supreme
1 November 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Excellent movie about an "idea." The murder mystery is itself a "MacGuffin" to the central question of some of the characters' inter-relationships. This film is deserving of its Academy Award and nominations !! Watch it twice since it bears more insights on a closer viewing; it is full of "inside" entertainment for those who love the films of that era and the pop music genre of the 1930's. Truly an ensemble effort with some excellent work by hardworking veterans and young British geniuses.
