"Howards End" is an exceptional portrait of the English class system. Of all the movies based on Forster's novels, I'd bank on this one as the best.

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.
