Downton Abbey: A New Era trailer released

Movies are starting to find their say and lazy summers on the French Riviera are becoming an obsession for good-natured Britons.

But while Downton Abbey is entering a new era at the end of Roaring Twenties, it’s business as usual for fans of the ITV hit series.

Clever, writer Julian Fellowes doesn’t stray far from his winning formula in this new big-screen adventure for the aristocratic Crawleys and their loyal minions.

While his successful first film was humorous during a royal visit, this wildly entertaining sequel takes the British drama trail off and towards foreign shores.

Like the stars of Are you being served? Spain’s hit “Costa Plonka,” Lord and Lady Grantham (Hugh Bonneville and Elizabeth McGovern) travel to a mansion in the South of France, which was left to Countess Dowager Dame Maggie Smith by a mysterious mistress. from the last century.

Meanwhile, Hollywood went to Downton.

To raise money for the cash-strapped estate, Michelle Dockery’s Lady Mary Talbot accepts an offer from film producer Jack Barber (Hugh Dancy) to use the house as a filming location for a silent film.

There’s drama and humor as the swashbuckling diva Myrna Dalgleish (Laura Haddock) and dashing star Guy Dexter (Dominic West) curl up in front of the gate.

Fellowes plays the cot from Singin’ In The Rain, when Barber turns the film into a new-style walkie-talkie and Lady Mary and her famous servants join in.

The era of silent films and the changing world of international travel presents production designers with new seams.

But along with floppy hats and designer sunglasses, there’s plenty of second-hand fashion on display at the wedding of Tom (Allen Leech) and her maid Lucy (Tuppence Middleton).

The pair begin a romance in the first movie just before Tom stumbles upon Lucy’s secret illegitimate daughter from Baroness Bagshaw.

And there are many more secrets aired in the soap’s latest sub-lot. Lady Mary is having marital troubles, Lord Grantham is questioning his existence, and another beloved character has secretly gone to see Dr. Clarkson (David Robb).

The previous film ended with Tu Hy Vien revealing an incurable disease with no name. And quite rightly, Maggie Smith takes center stage as the series enters the modern era.

Fellowes offers a host of other acerbic one-liars songs and plays a key role in the film’s touching ending.

Matrilineal rule may be coming to an end, but there’s still a lot of life in this age-old family story.
