(1993) Having utterly sacrificed his personal life in the service of an English lord (James Fox) who ended up as a disgraced Nazi sympathizer, an aging British butler (Anthony Hopkins) journeys to the West of England in 1958, hoping to rehire and possibly risk romance with the spirited housekeeper (Emma Thompson) whose love he dutifully spurned decades earlier. James Ivory meticulously directs a splendid portrait of personal tragedy as a selfless man sadly comes to realize that, in his unquestioned devotion to his master, he has missed out on the all the best things in life. A few emotional confrontations. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (PG -- parental guidance suggested) TCM (cable)
