Film Review: HOWARD'S END

Oscar-winner Thompson owns this film. She’s an intelligent, educated woman in Edwardian England torn between her bohemian sister (Carter) & her new husband (Hopkins) a conservative upper-crust businessman. Personal Best for the whole Merchant Ivory team, especially Jhabvala (who also won an Oscar for her fine adaptation of Forster’s novel). More on HOWARD’S END.

Film Review: HIGH ART

An ambitious editor discovers that her neighbor is a famous recluse. The jaded older woman is drawn in by the young woman’s innocence & energy. Powerful depiction of the multiple, highly charged currents that flow in mentor/mentee relationships. Ally Sheedy’s best part ever won her multiple awards. Warning: adults only. More on HIGH ART.
