The Remains of the Day

In 1958, Stevens (Anthony Hopkins), a perfect butler, travels through England. He now works for an American millionaire (Cristopher Reeve) who is the new owner of Darlington Hall, a mansion who lived his stage of greatest splendor twenty years before, when his owner, a British aristocrat, gathered at home the most influential characters of the 30s, a crucial era for the future of Europe. This circumstance allowed Stevens to witness conversations about the most important political facts of the moment. At the same time, his routine personal life suffered an unexpected change with the arrival of Miss Kenton, the new keys (Emma Thomson).
