- Award Snub: Nominated for eight Academy Awards, but won nothing.
- Retroactive Recognition: Baby Lena Headey shows up as a maid for a few minutes.
- Values Dissonance: Elizabeth thinks that Miss Kenton is old, calculating that she's at least 30 years old. Even in the late 80s / early 90s this must have seemed odd to anyone unaware that in The '30s, any unmarried British woman aged 30 or older would have been considered an old spinster.
YMMV / The Remains of the Day
