About the film:
In this follow-up to the 2019 feature film in which the Crawley family and staff received a royal visit from the King and Queen of Great Britain, the residents of Downton Abbey go on a grand journey to the South of France to uncover the mystery of the Dowager Countess’ newly inherited villa.
“Lush settings, well-appointed sets, and an eye-popping wardrobe only add to the magic, and good luck not happily sinking into two hours of confectionary entertainment.”
–Kate Erbland for IndieWire
