What an exquisite film, and such a perfect love story. I don't think there has been an ensemble cast to match the one in the Merchant Ivory era - I so miss those days! Wilby, Grant, and Graves in particular hit a high note in their acting careers with this piece.
Despite a dressy veneer, this is a tender adapatation of the posthumous Forster novel. Handsomely realised and performed with earnest conviction, this is one of the finer entries in the Merchant Ivory canon shot through with a gentle but righteous sense of an unjust world.
