Stodgy? Perhaps. Stunning? Certainly! Just one year after their celebrated adaptation of Howard’s End, producer/director team Merchant Ivory reunited stars Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson for Kazuo Ishiguro’s story about servants in 1930s England. The lord of the house is a Nazi sympathizer, but also the stuffy, repressed butler can’t express his feelings for the housekeeper. A quarter century after its original release, director James Ivory heads to Newport (again!) for a screening of the film. It might be a time for celebration – bookies are heavily favoring the 89-year old to win an Oscar this weekend for his Call Me By Your Name screenplay.
