Altman’s “Gosford Park” next at library

Posted on: November 8, 2009

If you like English country houses and murder mysteries with a twist, try the next movie at the Murphy Library.  We’re showing the late, great American director Robert Altman’s “Gosford Park,” Thursday at 6 p.m. It is rated R and runs 137 minutes.

The year is 1932 and Sir William McCordle, wealthy English industrialist, is entertaining guests for a weekend of shooting and fine dining at his large country house. His guests include family, a Hollywood actor and various business partners, who all want a piece of McCordle’s money. The house is run by a large group of servants with their own needs and desires. A sudden murder makes everyone a suspect.

The cast is superb, especially under Altman’s direction. Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Alan Bates, Helen Mirren, Emily Watson, Stephen Fry, Clive Owen and Derek Jacobi are a few of the unusual suspects.  Call 837-2417 for details.
