After hearing novelist Ruth Prawer Jhabvala talking about the creation of this Forster film (she wrote the screenplay), I decided to have a go.

Rated 2/10. I found this to be quite boring - overloaded with useless dialogue.

Classic movie adaptation of a classic book. The British always do these so well. A must for college students (or college bound teens) who don't have time to read the book but want to be thought literate.

Howard's End is a good British movie that I recommend for the acting and drama.

Not bad at all. Well scripted and interesting to follow. An excellent cast choice. I found the ending a little weak compared to the rest of the film.

I'd watched on its original theatre release (1992), but thought -- I could do worse than spend an evening with the likes of Emma Thompson, Anthony Hopkins, Helena Bonham Carter & Vanessa Redgrave.
I was completely rewarded -- the film is not only a masterly translation of novel to screen, it is exquisitely film & magnificently acted. A lovely, lovely film, start to finish.
