Next screening? “Downton Abbey: A New Era”

What’s the trailer tell us?

“I’ve inherited a villa in the South of France.”

“Someone’s making a movie…at DOWNTON?”

When a sitcom produced either of those plot twists, we’d use the phrase “jumped the shark” back in days of yore.

But with Maggie Smith leading us into a Victorian Era flashback (if she’s supposed to be young, and “Downton” began with WWI) and a great estate coping with the challenges of The Great Depression or right around there, this could be delicious.

“A New Era” comes to theaters May 20.
