The Remains of the Day

The movie "The Remains of the Day" came out 31 years ago.  I am often surprised by the passage of time.  Anthony Hopkins was 55 years old when it came out, and this was two years after he did "The Silence of the Lambs."
The movie was highly praised for its performances and for its message. Anthony Hopkins was nominated for Best Actor.  The main character is effectively in a prison partially of his own making by being stuck in English tradition and roles.

I remember thinking that the movie was a bit of a bore and a waste of Emma Thompson.  It was delightful to see Christopher Reeve in a small role at the end.
