About this product
- DescriptionE.M. Forster's 1908 novel, A ROOM WITH A VIEW, is adapted for the screen by director James Ivory in this beautifully lighthearted tale of Edwardian manners. Helena Bonham Carter stars as a young Englishwoman, Lucy Honeychurch. When Lucy and her spinster chaperone, Charlotte Bartlett (Maggie Smith), travel to Florence, they meet an unconventional Englishman, Mr. Emerson (Denholm Elliott), and his romantically unhappy son, George (Julian Sands). After George makes the grievous mistake of kissing Lucy during a picnic in the Florentine hills, Charlotte rushes her back to England. Safely home, Lucy becomes engaged to the stiff, very proper Cecil (Daniel Day-Lewis), but after finding out the Emersons have moved close by, Lucy has a hard time ignoring her attraction to the unsuitable George.<BR>Producer Ismail Merchant considered A ROOM WITH A VIEW Merchant Ivory's first genuine blockbuster, and it enjoyed more popular success than any previous Merchant Ivory film. Screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala was awarded an Academy Award for her screenplay, and the film itself was nominated for Best Picture. Director James Ivory's tale also features British movie icons Judi Dench and Simon Callow. A ROOM WITH A VIEW was the first of three Forster novels (the other two were MAURICE and HOWARDS END) adapted by Merchant Ivory Productions.

Wonderful, wonderful acting!
I am fond of period drama so this film couldn't fail for me. Having said that, it abounds with brilliant acting, lovely scenes from Italy and the English countryside. Basically a love story (wonderful to feel sexual tension without couples leaping into bed!!) and an insight into the confines of relationships in an era where women were seen and not heard but it illustrates they still have plenty of hidden spirit. Hollywood may turn out blockbusters but this film will do for me.

A Room With A View Film DVD.
I loved this film for the slow relaxing way the film maranders along with the characters, the sun is shining and love is in the air. Very much a girli film, to watch when your tired and just want to chill out and have a happy ending. I also loved the costumes, hair styles and to catch a glimpse of how the wealthy may have lived in the Edwardian times. A film packed with famous acters and actreses, and the quality of acting shows. A light hearted look at manners and etiquette in a time gone by. BRILL
