This movie features a very large cast and portrays the guests and servants at an English country house during a weekend hunt. The story follows the wealthy guests and their stratified classes along with their servants and the many layers in their social order. There is also murder mystery but, ultimately, that is peripheral to the main story being told about the stratification of society.

Back to the list.
