  • Incisively witty, provocative and acted to perfection, this sublime entertainment is a career peak for producer Ismail Merchant, director James Ivory and screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. show more

  • The splendid cast embodies the characters so fully that the events actually seem to be happening to them, instead of unfolding from a screenplay. show more

  • The filmmakers have allowed themselves an overlong 140 minutes in order to preserve as much of the plot as possible, but they have bypassed many of the novel's key ideas and ironies. show more
