|Howard’s End – Trailer
A new 4K restoration of one of Merchant Ivoryâ€™s undisputed masterpieces, this adaptation of E.M. Forsterâ€™s classic 1910 novel is a saga of class relations and changing times in Edwardian England. Margaret Schlegel (Emma Thompson) and her sister Helen (Helena Bonham Carter) become involved with two couples: a wealthy, conservative industrialist (Anthony Hopkins) and his wife (Vanessa Redgrave), and a working-class man (Samuel West) and his mistress (Niccola Duffet). The interwoven fates and misfortunes of these three families and the diverging trajectories of the two sistersâ€™ lives are connected to the ownership of Howards End, a beloved country home. A compelling, brilliantly acted study of one womanâ€™s struggle to maintain her ideals and integrity in the face of Edwardian societyâ€™s moribund conformist values.
