75 years since the original film, ‘Downton Abbey’ star Dan Stevens, who appeared with co-star Judi Dench in ‘Hay Fever,’ is cast as bestselling crime novelist Charles, who suffers from dismal writer’s block while struggling with his first screenplay. His picture-perfect new wife, Ruth, dreams of leaving London for Hollywood. Seeking inspiration, he invites Madame Arcati to perform a séance in his home, only to realise that she has inadvertently summoned the spirit of his deceased first wife – the fiery Elvira, who tries to win back his affections, leading to an increasingly complex love triangle.
