Downton Abbey (out Sep 12) is the latest movie spin-off from a successful TV show. Set in 1927, this two hour movie is structured a visit from King George V and Queen Mary who are spending roughly 24 hours at the famed residence. The cast is superb and it’s no surprise to see 84-year-old Maggie Smith as the standout in a role that won her three Emmy Awards. The film captures the era and is jolly good fun. Grade: B+.
