Award wreaths: Winner, OCIC Award, Venice Film Festival (1992) The Shooting Party James Mason (Lolita) is brilliant as Sir Randolph Nettleby, a charming, elderly aristocrat who invites a party of lords and ladies to his estate for an indulgent shooting weekend on the eve of WW1, only to realise that the days of the nobility may be numbered. The Draughtsman's Contract Master director Peter Greenaway (The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover) employs extravagant costumes, a twisting plot, elegantly barbed dialogue and a mesmerisng score by Michael Nyman in this witty, stylised, erotic country house murder mystery that's a treat for fans of sophisticated English drama.
