"Based on E.M. Forster's novel of requited love.

"Stevens est le majordome de Darlington Hall, un somptueux château anglais. Il dirige avec rigueur toute une armée de domestiques. Dignité, précision, obéissance et discrétion sont ses mots d'ordre. Il est tout dévoué à Lord Darlington, prestigieuse figure de l'aristocratie britannique des années 30. Son dévouement est tel qu'il ne réalise pas les liens étroits qu'entretient son maître avec des sympathisants pro-nazis. Pour le seconder, il engage Miss Kenton. Impulsive, enjouée et vive, elle l'irrite et le séduit à la fois. Leur attirance mutuelle et non déclarée les conduit à un conflit dont ils sortiront tous les deux vaincus." [Source : jaquette]
