The ‘Downton Abbey’ cast wants to take you back to a more innocent time — 2012

Ah, “Downton Abbey.” We missed you so. Has it really been just four years since you left? Feels like ages. A lot has happened since then. Britain wasn’t bickering over Boris and Brexit when you arrived in 2010 (or even when you called it a day in 2015). And America was not yet locked in its forever spitball war between pro-Trump and anti-Trump forces. Maybe it was an illusion — of course it was an illusion — but the planet seemed more gentle when Downton was king.

And so we’ve become nostalgic for its nostalgia. Misty-eyed too, for a simpler time free of cold brew coffee, electric scooters and Twitter. An arms-wide-open welcome, then, for “Downton Abbey” the movie, which hits theaters Friday and not a moment too soon. Escapism, sweet escapism, may just be what the world needs now.

Hugh Bonneville, who plays the family patriarch Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham in the series and the new movie, said he experienced the healing powers of Downton when he sat down to watch the movie a few weeks ago at an early screening.

Michelle Dockery, Allen Leech, and Laura Carmichael’s Grand Return to Downton Abbey

Can you go home again? Yes, if that home is a castle, and you are the cast of one of television’s most beloved shows.

It’s a moody, damp day in late spring, with clouds lingering overhead, as my chauffeur (okay, Lyft driver) drops me off on a gravel drive leading to a stone castle. Aside from the whinnying of a horse in the distance, the only sound comes from my feet crunching on the stones. I pause before opening the massive front door, half expecting a butler to do it for me. Inside, a maid clad in a black dress and ruffled white apron stands at the ready, while a pair of footmen flank an arched doorway.

This is not Downton Abbey, the fictional home of the also fictional Crawley family, nor is it Highclere Castle, the picture-­perfect British estate that for six seasons served as the backdrop to the blockbuster period drama Downton Abbey. Rather, it is Castle Hill on the Crane Estate, about an hour outside Boston, where three of the series’s stars have gathered for a photo shoot to promote the ­feature-length Downton Abbey film, which comes out later this month.

The setting, a seaside mansion built in 1928 for a Chicago industrialist, is a glorious stand-in for the real deal, with its rolling green lawns and impressive stonework. Add to that the uniformed employees, and I am transported back to England in the 1920s, to the fanciful world of the Crawley family and the staff that served them (even if the employees at the Crane Estate get to clock out at the end of every day).

Which is why I’m having a hard time remembering to call the assembled trio of actors by their real names—Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael, and Allen Leech—and not those of the characters we’ve all come to admire: Lady Mary, the haughty eldest daughter of Lord Crawley; Lady Edith, Mary’s sister and bête noire; and Tom Branson, a former chauffeur who married up, joining the family as the husband to the third sister, Lady Sybil Crawley.
