Synopsis

Flawless performances from Hopkins and Thompson form the emotional core of Merchant-Ivory’s tale of repressed love in a 1930s’ English manor. Hopkins is the butler whose feelings for Thompson’s housekeeper cause him to question the personal sacrifices he’s made during a lifetime of subservience.
