Downton Abbey: A New Era Is A New Era, Indeed

Downton Abbey: A New Era takes audiences to a new era as the adventure continues following six seasons and a movie. It would not be a Downton Abbey film without adding some twists and turns along the way. However, I will not be spoiling the particulars in question. Longtime fans will be at an advantage but if you’ve only seen the previous film, I think you’ll do just fine. It helps if you watch the…

The Wife: Sexism at Play

While depicting the sexism of the 1960s, The Wife proves to be a compelling film purely on the basis of Glenn Close’s performance. To most people, Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) is the wife of her prolific author husband, Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce).  The two couldn’t be more different.  This shows not just during the present day (1992) or the flashbacks to Smith College in 1958 or Connecticut in the 1960s.  When the Castlemans learn that…
