Movie Mondays: Downton Abbey
My friend Mo put me on to this series Downton Abbey. I spent the weekend catching up on Season one. Of course I am absolutely hooked! The Downton Abbey estate houses the The Crawley Family and their servants. The sinking of the Titanic brings news that the heir apparent has died and a far removed cousin should inherit the estate. The dynamic between the family upstairs and the staff downstairs is wonderfully contrasted and interwoven by the creator Julian Fellowes. He explores class, politics (womens rights), romance, mischief and mayhem. It's a wonderfully done series. If you haven't already, you can find the first season on Netflix and the second season you can watch on PBS right now. Enjoy!
