When Graham Swift's novel "A Feast Day" was published in 2017, it stormed the bestseller lists. Not only fans of the novel will love this film! A DAY OF FEAST is more than exhilarating costume drama: very modern, congenially adapted and perfectly cast with newcomer Odessa Young, "The Crown" star Josh O'Connor and Oscar winners Olivia Colman, Glenda Jackson and Colin Firth. England, 1924: Maid Jane (Odessa Young) has been given the day off by her masters, the Nivens (Colin Firth, Olivia Colman), to celebrate Mother's Day. Joyfully excited, she cycles out into the spring sunshine to see her lover Paul (Josh O'Connor). After many clandestine meetings and hidden messages, this is to be their last date, as Paul is soon to be married, befitting his status. Jane is allowed to walk through the main door for the first time, only to sink straight into his bed, as the family including servants have flown out. When Paul finally sets off for his engagement party, Jane - completely inspired by the passionate act of love - wanders alone and naked through the spacious manor house, unaware of the fateful turn this special festive day has in store.
