Sherlock Holmes : a game of shadows (ca. 129 min.) - "Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room... until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large Professor Moriarty and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective. When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade, points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by Professor Moriarty"-- Publisher

Novembre 1932. Nella magnifica tenuta di campagna di Gosford Park, Sir William McCordie e la moglie, lady Sylvia, organizzano una festa che si protrarrà per l'intero week-end. Il gruppo di invitati è piuttosto eterogeneo: c'é Constance, contessa di Trentham, zia di lady Sylvia; c'è Anthony Meredith, ex ufficiale eroe della guerra mondiale; c'è Ivor Novello, attore famosissimo delle matinée britanniche; c'è Morris Weissman, americano, produttore dei film della serie Charlie Chan, di cui sta mettendo in cantiere una nuova avventura. Ci sono poi Isobel, figlia di lady Sylvia, e Louisa, la sorella minore con il marito Raymond. Tutti gli ospiti arrivano nella residenza in compagnia della servitù. A questi ultimi, i domestici di casa assegnano i posti, e ricordano che i loro nomi in quella occasione sono quelli dei rispettivi padroni: ad organizzare sono Jennings, capo maggiordomo; la sigonra Wilson, la governante; la signora Croft, la cuoca; Elsie, la capocameriera. Dopo la prima notte (in cui Henry, valletto un po' strano di Morris si è spinto a portare il latte in camera di lady Sylvia), il mattino seguente il gruppo parte per la caccia. Verso la fine, sir Williams viene sfiorato da un misterioso proiettile sparato non si sa da chi. La sera a cena, Elsie mentre serve prende la parola in difesa di sir Williams, di cui è l'amante, e subito scappa, consapevole che per lei non c'è più posto in villa. La signora Wilson porta un caffè in biblioteca a sir William, lui lo rifiuta, beve un liquore. Poco dopo, non vedendolo, Isobel va a cercarlo e lo trova morto. Arriva l'ispettore Thompson e comincia ad indagare. Intanto si scopre che quello arrivato con Morris non è un valletto ma un attore, convocato per imparare da vicino certe usanze britanniche. Mentre l'ispettore interroga, Mary, la cameriera di Constance, riesce a sapere che sir William era il padre di Robert, valletto di Raymond. William, quando aveva le fabbriche, ne approfittava per avere rapporti con quasi tutte le operaie, i cui figli poi prendevano strade diverse, in vari orfanotrofi. La signora Wilson è sorella della signora Croft, e la mamma di Robert. Ora il cerchio si è chiuso. L'ispettore va via senza aver individuato il colpevole. Mary sale sulla carrozza della sua padrona lady Constance. Gosford Park resta di nuovo in solitudine
