The new Downton movie is released to watch at home today!

Based on ITV’s hit period drama series, the highly-anticipated sequel finally arrived in cinemas this spring.

Set in 1928, Downton Abbey: A New Era finds our beloved characters embarking on a lavish trip to the South of France where they must uncover the mystery of the Dowager Countess’ newly inherited villa.

The film is now available to rent online via Amazon Prime for $19.99 in the US.

This is great news for fans who’ve not been able to visit the cinema – or just if you want to watch it again in the comfort of your own home.

Downton Abbey: A New Era received some great reviews from the British press when it opened in the UK at the end of April.

“The luxury soap opera’s second feature-length spin-off ticks all the right boxes,” wrote The Telegraph, while The Guardian called it “undeniably entertaining as ever.”
