A ROOM WITH A VIEW

Dir. James Ivory (UK: 1985) 117 min.

This film is an adaptation of the 1908 novel with the same name by E. M. Forster. The central character Miss Lucy Honeychurch (Helena Bonham-Carter) is a young English woman visiting Italy. She is accompanied by her older cousin and chaperone Charlotte Bartlett (Maggie Smith.) While on vacation the women meet Mr. Emerson (Denholm Elliott) and his son George Emerson (Julian Sands.) Although the Emerson’s are from England they are very different from Lucy and her cousin. Soon Lucy and George develop feelings for each other. Although Lucy has these feelings, she has a romantic interest in England, Cecil, (played by Daniel Day-Lewis.) Once her holiday is over and Lucy returns to England she tries to forget about her encounters with George, but finds reminders of him everywhere.
