Directed by Michael Engler, the time has come for the Downton Abbey movie teaser trailer.  It doesn’t show much but it does confirm that the key cast of the television series are among the stars.

A cast that includes Dame Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, Hugh Hugh Bonneville, Joanne Froggatt, and Elizabeth McGovern – to name just a few…

I actually have no idea how Downton Abbey the television  series ended because I stopped watching before it was all concluded. I am however a little bit curious about this new feature film version. I want to know how well the series will translate to the big screen. 

Downton Abbey Release Dates:  September 13th, 2019, (UK); September 20th , 2019 (US)

FINDING YOUR FEET (2018): The Things I Liked…

Finding Your Feet (2018) Celia Imrie, Imelda Staunton

Finding Your Feet; the comedy / drama about a judgmental, middle class snob, who’s forced to live with her sister in an impoverished inner-city council estate is a pleasant serving of quintessential Britishness.

Starring Imelda Staunton, Celia Imrie, Timothy Spall and Joanna Lumley, director Richard Loncraine’s movie isn’t necessarily the most memorable and the story isn’t especially unpredictable. Nevertheless Finding Your Feet is a nice ‘easy viewing’ reminder of the gift of siblinghood, the ones you’re born into and the ones you choose. 

I enjoyed the very British dialogue and its often rather well-timed delivery. One particular line that stood out would be the words: It’s not a panic attack, I’m not that sort of person. I just had a bit of a turn.’ 

Another highlight was seeing beautiful shots of places in London, England that I recognise.

For the Britishness, humour and siblinghood, etc., watch Finding Your Feet  if you’re so curious it does have a certain charm.

In Finding Your Feet, a judgmental, middle class snob discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend. As a result, she’s forced to move in with her sister who lives on an impoverished inner-city council estate.

Directed by Richard Loncraine; Timothy Spall, Joanna Lumley, Imelda Staunton and Celia Imrie star…

It’s very clear how this movie is going to play out. As such, I’ll be watching – not so much because I expect the story to surprise and thrill me. But rather for the portrayal of sisterhood in the later years. I also like the two leading ladies, the promise of humour and general easy viewing feel.

Lastly, is it just me or does the lady at 0:03 in the above trailer kind of look like Melissa McCarthy?

Josie Lawrence, Fran Targ and Jacqueline Ramnarine also star.

Finding Your Feet Release Dates: February 23rd, 2018 (UK)…
