Oscar Winners Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs) and Emma Thompson (Howards End) star in this extraordinary and moving story of blind devotion and repressed love. Hopkins stars as Stevens, a dedicated English butler to Lord Darlington, beautifully played by James Fox (The Servant). Thompson stars as the estate's housekeeper, a high-spirited, strong-minded young woman who watches the goings-on upstairs with horror. Despite her apprehensions, she and Stevens gradually fall in love, though neither will admit it, and only give vent to their charged feelings via fierce arguments. Marvelously acted by a supporting cast that includes Christopher Reeve and Hugh Grant, The Remains Of The Day achieved an astounding 8 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress.
