Remains of the Day, The

Lists: Drama, Romance, Best Picture nominee 1990 to 1999

Brief Synopsis: "A rule bound head butler's world of manners and decorum in the household he maintains is tested by the arrival of a housekeeper who falls in love with him in post-WWI Britain. The possibility of romance and his master's cultivation of ties with the Nazi cause challenge his carefully maintained veneer of servitude."
