About the Movie

Merchant Ivory Productions, led by director James Ivory and producer Ismail Merchant, became a household name with A Room with a View, the first of their extraordinary adaptations of E. M. Forster novels. A cherubic nineteen-year-old Helena Bonham Carter plays Lucy Honeychurch, a young, independent-minded, upper-class Edwardian woman who is trying to sort out her burgeoning romantic feelings, divided between an enigmatic free spirit (Julian Sands) she meets on vacation in Florence and the priggish bookworm (Daniel Day-Lewis) to whom she becomes engaged back in the more corseted Surrey. Funny, sexy, and sophisticated, this gargantuan art-house hit features a sublime supporting cast—including Simon Callow, Judi Dench, Denholm Elliott, Maggie Smith—and remains a touchstone of intelligent romantic cinema.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A Room With a View is not only uncharacteristically benign for Forster, but also blithely, elegantly funny, which is a fit description of [this]first-rate film adaptation... – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: A thoroughly entertaining screen adaptation of novelist E.M. Forster's comedy of manners about the Edwardian English upper class at home and abroad, distinguished by superb ensemble acting, intelligent writing and stunning design. – Variety Staff, Variety, Feb 27, 2015

Fresh: It is an intellectual film, but intellectual about emotions: It encourages us to think about how we feel, instead of simply acting on our feelings. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Decent, honest, truthful and, dearest of all to Forster, it connects. – Geoff Andrew, Time Out, Feb 27, 2015

for the sake of love

witty, splendid romantic period film. I would say this is one of my favourites. A clever woman, a determined man and load of passion

CLASSIC, one of the best movies ever

For the longest time this movie wasnt available for purchase. I'm so happy to be able to download this; I've adored it since the 80s, and it's still holds up after all this time.
