The new Downton Abbey feature film ‘Downton Abbey: A New Era’ featuring a score by John Lunn is set to be released in UK cinemas on Friday 29th April. The screenplay has once again been written by award-winning creator Julian Fellowes, with the film directed by Simon Curtis and produced by Gareth Neame and Liz Trubridge alongside Fellowes.
Many of the original principal cast of Downton Abbey reunite alongside new cast including Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye and Dominic West.
‘As director Jack Barber (Hugh Dancy) brings along his leading actors Myrna Dalgleish (Laura Haddock) and Guy Dexter (Dominic West), some of the family see this as an opportunity to make themselves scarce, and so set off to the South of France, to make sense of a villa mysteriously left to Violet Crawley (Maggie Smith) from a recently deceased French aristocrat, as the family become enamoured by the matriarch’s intriguing, and elusive past, while also keeping a close, sombre eye on her present, and what may be left of it.’
