Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

1.40PM, FOX­TEL MASTER­PIECE

Mul­ti­ple mys­ter­ies and mal­ad­justed may­hem abound amid the deca­dent op­u­lence of a week­end shoot­ing party at an English coun­try house in the 1930s. This su­perb pe­riod melo­drama from vet­eran direc­tor Robert Alt­man ( The Player) play­fully skews its Agatha Christie-like plot­ting with an acid tongue and a con­niv­ing sneer. A star- stud­ded cast of top- fl ight English act­ing tal­ent – in­clud­ing Kristin Scott Thomas, Jeremy Northam and He­len Mir­ren – fur­ther strength­ens the magic.
