Plot Outline:

The machinations of the classes in early twentieth century Britain are illustrated through the interplay between three families: the Schlegels, a free-spirited set of siblings; the Wilcoxes, part of the landed gentry; and the Basts, a struggling lower-class couple. When Mrs. Wilcox bequeaths her beloved house, Howards End, to Margaret Schlegel on her deathbed, her family sets out to stymie their matriarch's final wish. But fate stands in the way of their actions. -- Arbogast1960

A very splendid period piece film. A nice one, with an interesting story and characters. Which are all bolstered by the art direction and the performances. I would sat that it is better than a room with a view due to more interesting characters and plot.

Definitely the best Merchant/Ivory production, and one of the finest classic literature adaptations I've ever seen. Emma Thompson is fantastic as Margaret, an almost indescribable character--she's at one artsy, down to earth, scatterbrained, gentle, strong-willed. A really remarkable job. Vanessa Redgrave is also superb as the dying matriarch. Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's screenplay is, not surprisingly, excellent. The story, while hard to encapsulate, provides a fascinating look at the importance of land in the British class system, as well as the plight of women in a distressingly misogynistic society--but I promise it's much more interesting than that sounds. Well worth seeking out.
