Academy Awards 1992 - Best Actress: Emma Thompson
Academy Awards 1992 - Best Adapted Screenplay: Ruth Prawer Jhabvala
4 stars out of 4 -- [A] film seething with anger, passion, greed and emotional violence. That the characters are generally well-behaved says less about their manners than their inhibitions.
...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...
It is an intelligent movie, a good movie, about real and not fake issues. And it moves the heart. Full Review
The New York Review of Books
[A]n achingly poignant literary adaptation....The performances remain fresh and appallingly human...
...[The film] crackles with repressed energy....Acting honours go to Bonham Carter and Hopkins...
...This is the year's most literate and civilized film...
Rating: 5/5 -- The high watermark of Merchant Ivory film-making. Full Review
E.M. Forster's 1910 novel is adapted for the screen by Merchant Ivory Productions in this masterful Edwardian Age romance directed by James Ivory. The dying Ruth Wilcox (Vanessa Redgrave) wishes to leave her country home, Howards End, to Margaret Schlegel (Emma Thompson in an Academy Award-winning role), a modest woman of little means who will soon be forced out of her own home in London. But Ruth's husband, Henry (Anthony Hopkins), an upper middle class businessman, keeps secret her desire even after he and Margaret become friends. However, after Henry and Margaret marry, their class differences and philosophies threaten to cause them unhappiness. Margaret's sister, Helen (Helena Bonham Carter), is disgusted by the Wilcox's snobbish ways and is attracted to helping struggling clerk Leonard Bast (Sam West) improve his position. Merchant-Ivory screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala was the force behind adapting this Forster novel into a film, winning her second Academy Award for her screenplay; her first Oscar was for A ROOM WITH A VIEW.
Subtle romance, callous class distinctions, and needless tragedy converge in this excellent drama of manners in Edwardian England, centered around a country house known as Howards End. The film, based on E.M. Forster's 1910 novel, assembles Merchant-Ivory standouts Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins; it won three Oscars and was nominated for six others.
