Remains Of The Day
Columbia/Tri-Star Home Video
Oscar winner ANTHONY HOPKINS (The Silence of the Lambs) and EMMA THOMPSON (Howards End) reunite with the acclaimed Merchant Ivory film-making team to create THE REMAINS OF THE DAY.
Stevens (Anthony Hopkins) is the perfect English butler. Now employed by Mr. Lewis (CHRISTOPHER REEVE - Superman), the new American owner of Darlington Hall, Stevens has spent the best part of his working life serving Lord Darlington (JAMES FOX -Patriot Games), the host of many prestigious international conferences in the 1930's. 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 (EMMA THOMPSON). 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.
