1930’s England. Darlington Hall runs like clockwork under one of the last truly great butlers. Reserved and dutiful, like his father before him, and with the funny and forthright housekeeper Kenton by his side, Stevens faithfully serves. Meanwhile, England stands on a precipice as fascism builds and boils in Europe.

20 years later Steven travels to find an old friend, remembering choices made and not made, journeying to one last chance at happiness. 

Having won the 2017 Nobel Prize, and later becoming a beloved Merchant Ivory film, The Remains of the Day is a story for anyone who has ever been afraid to follow their heart.
