Overview
HELENA BONHAM CARTER, MAGGIE SMITH, DANIEL DAY LEWIS, DENHOLM ELLIOTT and JULIAN SANDS head a spectacular English cast in this acclaimed Academy Award™-winning* Merchant/Ivory production based on E.M. Forster's novel of wit and romance.

Off to the sensuous landscape of Florence for her horizon broadening tour, Lucy, a perfectly proper young Edwardian lady (CARTER) is chaperoned by her even more proper Aunt Charlotte. At the merest hint of scandal - Lucy is kissed by an improper suitor (SANDS) - Charlotte whisks her back to the serene English countryside where she is betrothed to a supposedly suitable gentleman (LEWIS), insufferably in love with himself.

With its "superb ensemble acting, intelligent writing and stunning design" (The New York Times), this delightful comedy of manners sparkles with keen observations of class behavior and genuine humor.

*1986:Best Writing (Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium), Best Art Direction, Best Costume Design, Best Set Direction
