Nominated for eight Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress, The Remains of the Day stars Anthony Hopkins as English butler Stevens, who has devoted 30 years to his master, Lord Darlington, at Darlington Hall in post-WWI Britain. Prizing discretion and service above all, Stevens realizes as he looks back on his life that his unquestioning faith in Lord Darlington has cost him dearly. Engrossed in orchestrating his employer's grand banquets, receptions and conferences-which turn out to involve a pact with the Nazis - he was forced to neglect his dying father and denied his feelings for the attractive young housekeeper, Miss Kenton (Emma Thompson). Based on the Booker Award-winning novel by Kazuo Ishiguro and developed by the Ivory/Merchant/Jhabvala team (A Room with a View, Howards End), this endearing story evolves into a profound and moving study of personality, class and culture.
