Reviews
Mine: I know that lots of folks love this kind of dreck, but I am not one of them. I only vagley remember this move. Lots of british acting very british. I think there was something about needing money and what you do to get is. Very pretty, but oh so dull.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Sumptuous, stimulating adaptation of E. M. Forster's novel of class distinction--and what happens when members of different social strata collide in 1910 England. Thompson won an Oscar for her terrific performance as an audacious and independent young woman of no means who is ever-so-subtly seduced by Hopkins, a successful man whose social veneer masks an insidious (and even cruel) nature. Extraordinarily good on every level. Also won Oscars for Best Screenplay (by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala) and Art Direction-Set Decoration. Simon Callow appears unbilled as a lecturer. Filmed in Super 35.
