The Remains of the Day (James Ivory, 1993, 35mm, 134 mins)

The butler of Darlington Hall reflects on what he lost in his years of devoted service, including the chance for love. Adapted from the sublime Kazuo Ishiguro novel, this “subtle, thoughtful movie” (Roger Ebert) earned eight Academy Award nominations. Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson lead a cast that includes James Fox, Christopher Reeve, Hugh Grant, and Lena Headey. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

“The World of James Ivory” presents highlights from across the seven-decade career of the acclaimed filmmaker, drawn from his personal collection of film prints donated to the archive in 2023.
