The Remains of the DaySet during the 1930s, the film follows James Stevens (Anthony Hopkins), a proper English butler to the doltish Lord Darlington, who sacrificed body and soul to service in the years leading up to World War II and later realizes too late how misguided his loyalty was to his lordly employer.

Critic Reviews of "The Remains of the Day"Chicago ReaderFebruary 11, 2008
The actors keep this interesting, but as a story it drifts and rambles.VarietyFebruary 11, 2008
All the meticulousness, intelligence, taste and superior acting that one expects from Merchant Ivory productions have been brought to bear.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Who else but Merchant Ivory to give the big-screen treatment to Ishiguro's Booker Prize-winning novel about class, fascism and the stiff upper lip?New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Here's a film for adults. It's also about time to recognize that Mr. Ivory is one of our finest directors, something that critics tend to overlook because most of his films have been literary adaptations.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
What do you call filmmakers who make literary entertainment box office in the age of Beavis and Butt-bead? Try miracle workers.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
A subtle, thoughtful movie.Three Movie BuffsFebruary 07, 2016
Just gets better with age.TheMovieReport.comDecember 28, 2008
Moves rather slowly, but the actors and their understated chemistry keep the film riveting, building to a climax that is absolutely heartrending.Film4February 11, 2008
Merchant-Ivory's best film by a mile.TV GuideFebruary 11, 2008
Though it offers a host of fine performances in a smoothly crafted, adult drama of unfulfilled love, it lacks the cumulative dramatic impact of the team's best work.EmanuelLevy.ComDecember 23, 2006
The narrative structure (long flashbacks, letters) is awkward but the actors (Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson in top form) attention to detail is meticulous and piercing considering how muted the emotions are.Needcoffee.comSeptember 24, 2005
First time I saw it, it destroyed me. Subsequent viewings have not improved my condition.
