There is one movie, despite 20+ viewings, in which I consistently catch previously unheard funny quips or whispered gossip (and that’s no small feat considering I pay pretty close attention when it comes to movies). Gosford Park never ceases to amaze me. Layer after layer of characters, plot twists, affairs and insanely decorated 1930s rooms fill up one of my absolute favorite murder mysteries.

I’m a sucker for a classic English country house, but even more so for the dynamic between the servants and upstairs guests . Gosford Park spends equal time focusing on the drama both upstairs and down, and more excitingly, when the two worlds collide. When it comes to decorating, I’m a “downstairs” girl myself. But when it comes time to, oh, I don’t know, being served breakfast in bed, all bets are off.
