Screener Squad: Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey Movie Review


It’s time to catch up on some releases we didn’t get to during their opening weekend. Downton Abbey was one of the big ones. Picking up from where the television show ended, this movie reunites much of the cast to prepare for the arrival of the king and queen of England. And while that may not sound like a fascinating plot to most people, you might be surprised when you hear not only how successful this movie was, but how much appeal it has with fans and non-fans alike. Such was the case when Justin brought his wife Lexie and Max together, one who is a humongous fan and one who has never seen an episode of the show, to review this movie. What did they think of the end product? Hear their full thoughts here
