Plat.com Descriptions
The White Countess: Set in Shanghai in the late 1930s, this is the story of the relationship between a blind former US diplomat and a refugee Countess (Richardson) reduced to a sordid life in the city's bars.

Todd Jackson (Fiennes), once an American diplomat filled with idealism, now bitterly disillusioned by realpolitik and the seemingly unavoidable nature of war, finds his life enriched by the beautiful, spirited Sofia....

Remains of the Day: Stevens is the perfect English butler. Now employed by Mr Lewis, the new American owner of Darlington Hall, Stevens has spent the best part of his working life serving Lord Darlington, the host of many prestigious international conferences in the 1930s. It was only when war broke out in 1939, that Lord Darlington's involvement with the Nazi party was uncovered.

Now, twenty years later, Stevens realizes that his unquestioning faith and dedication to duty were misplaced, and cost him dearly in his own personal life. Over several years, he carried on an intense relationship with the Estate's attractive young housekeeper, Miss Kenton. But his unwavering sense of duty led Stevens to deny his emotions - and eventually drive away the one woman he loved. Now he wants to make amends...

An extraordinary story of blind emotion and repressed love, The Remains Of The Day achieved an astounding 8 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress. Anthony Hopkins received the BAFTA Award for the Best Performance by an actor in a leading role.

Howards End: "Only Connect". This famous command is the catalyst which brings together two very different Edwardian families - the one passionate and progressive, the other hidebound by wealth and social status - with irreversible and devastating consequences.

A dying woman's impulsive wish marks a turning point in the relationship between the cosmopolitan Schlegel sisters, Margaret and Helen, and the wealthy Wilcox family when Ruth Wilcox bequeaths her idyllic country house, Howards End, to Margaret (Emma Thompson). Convinced that he is acting in the best interests of his family, the patriarcal Henry Wilcox destroys his wife's "unofficial" will. But, as the lonely repressed Henry falls in love with Margaret, and Helen's willful attacks on class and convention strike at the very heart of the Wilcox family, fate decrees that Henry must pay dearly for his deceit.
