Continuation of what we know & love about Downton. Not as great as a 9 episode season but very good!

I loved how they had all the same actors in all their former roles. The story continued from where it left off after the 2019 movie and had moved forward in time appropriately. It brought some tender conclusions, yet left enough newness in the progress going forward in the characters' lives that it could be deemed a successful conclusion, yet leaves open the possibility for another sequel. Seeing this movie was like seeing old friends again. I LOVED it!

It was done very well. Cast, wardrobe and setting authentic. I am so glad that I went to see the movie. My husband enjoyed it also. We are Downton Abbey fans from years ago. I recommend you see it.

My MIL and I absolutely love it! Still the feel good movie, with interesting twists. I like that there are still movies like this that exist: no profanities, nudities and gore. But the story line is still exquisite. It's perfect for me...with the exception of people in the back who chose to discuss their daily lives in the theater. Other than that, still the story we adored from the series.

My wife and I appreciated that nearly all of the previous Downton characters were retained for this movie. We especially liked the Dowager's comments to each family member and to her good friend Mrs. Crawley. The side plot of the silent movie starlet's voice predicament was interesting also. Overall, we say: Well done!

The set and location looked superb. The story kept us enchanted. The music and costumes are sublime. Anglophiles will enjoy this delightful film. Being a fan of the Abbey enhances your sentimentality.

I loved the show, but this movie seemed rushed. Many of the stars didn’t have lines or enough lines to make it worth having them in the movie. Barely any talk about what’s been happening since the last movie. They said they needed money but didn’t say why. In the last movie they were working with the farms to raise more money now they’re broke again? I thought it was just ok.

This is a movie for the fans—almost a gift, really. The last two-plus years have been a lot for everyone, and to escape to late 1920s England and France in all its splendor is a delight.

A New Era offers the kind of comfortable, comforting experience that Downton Abbey aficionados have been awaiting since before the term COVID was coined.

It’s all a lot of poppycock, and yet! Despite all this carping, Downton Abbey: A New Era was as satisfying a filmgoing experience as I can remember. Perhaps the nonsensical narrative lowers viewers’ defenses so the emotional anvil can land all the harder.
