Focus Features today kicks off a free weekly series of classic films with Robert Altman’s Gosford Park (2001), a murder-mystery comedy drama set in a 1932 British country house with upstairs guests and downstairs servants.
Gosford Park will live-stream on Facebook at 8 pm ET, accompanied by a Q&A with Julian Fellowes, an Oscar winner for his script. Fellowes would later create and write Downton Abbey, whose dowager mother Maggie Smith stars in Gosford Park.
Coming weeks of Focus Movie Mondays, all at 8 pm ET, will feature:
Moonrise Kingdom (2012) on April 13, including a Q&A with director Wes Anderson who received an Oscar nomination for his screenplay. The coming-of-age comedy-drama is about a pair of young lovers who flee their New England town, and the search party that‘s after them. An ensemble cast includes Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton.
You can submit questions for Anderson tomorrow, April 7, via Focus Features’ Facebook page.
Mallrats (1995) on April 20 — a cult buddy comedy written and directed by Kevin Smith, who will do an accompanying Q&A.
My Summer of Love (2004) on April 27 — a British romantic drama about two women (including Emily Blunt in her film debut) who fall in love during summer holiday in the Yorkshire countryside.
Each Facebook livestream will include a link to donate to the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s COVID 19 Response Fund.
