Here is a short review of "Downton Abbey: A New Era" movie plot summary.
In 1928, Tom Branson (Allen Leech), the Earl of Grantham's widowed son-in-law, marries Lucy Smith, the illegitimate daughter of and sole heir to Lady Maud Bagshaw (Imelda Staunton), Queen Mary's lady-in-waiting. Violet Crawley (Maggie Smith), the Dowager Countess of Grantham, astonishes the family by revealing that long ago she was gifted a villa in the South of France by the Marquis de Montmirail, who had recently passed away. She is leaving it to her great-granddaughter, Sybbie (Fifi Hart), Tom's daughter with the late Lady Sybil Crawley.
A film production company wants to use Downton to shoot a silent film called "The Gambler". Robert (Hugh Bonneville) declines, until his eldest daughter and estate manager, Lady Mary Talbot (Michelle Dockery), convinces him that the fee would be enough to replace Downton's leaking roof. The household staff are eager to see the film stars, but lead actress Myrna Dalgliesh's haughtiness offends them.
The new marquis invites the family to visit the villa. The ailing Violet is unable to travel, but Tom and Lucy, Lady Bagshaw, Robert Crawley and his wife Cora (Elizabeth McGovern), and their daughter Edith (the Marchioness of Hexham) and her husband, Bertie Pelham (Harry Hadden-Paton), accept. Lady Mary remains at Downton to oversee the filming.
Montmirail welcomes the family to the villa. His mother wants to contest Violet Crawley's ownership. However, the family lawyer states that there is no basis for a claim and so the villa is legally Violet's. The marquis speaks privately with Robert and stuns him by implying that Robert's birth date, nine months after the Dowager Countess visited in 1864, could mean they are half-brothers. That night, Cora reveals to Robert she may be fatally ill. Robert breaks down at the prospect of losing his mother, the Crawley name, and his wife in short succession.
