A Room With A View
About A Room With A View
Director James Ivory and producer Ismail Merchant brought this adaptation of E. M. Forster’s novel to the screen to wide acclaim. Released in 1986, it’s another example of the Merchant/Ivory brand; a literate mix of scrupulous screenwriting and finely-tuned production design carried by astute and intelligent actors. Seemingly destined for the arthouse, the film was a commercial hit thanks to its light comic tone and the brilliant cast including Helena Bonham-Carter, Judi Dench and Daniel Day-Lewis.
