Period and Historical
Is it OK to have a central character who never seizes control of his own life? That is the challenge that The Remains of the Day sets itself. The film traces the life of Stevens - a butler who lets both the great events of history and his own chances of personal happiness drift past him, because he knows his place: his role in society. But maybe it is only by understanding that there really were (and are) people like Stevens that we really understand history - and maybe that's the most important message of this subtle, moving drama.
A splendidly sinister and claustrophobic drama that turns the British class system upside down.
