A Room with a View, still ravishing after all these years.


The ravishing film, of course, was based upon the book of the same title by E.M. Forster.  The book is a lovely read, but honestly, I think Where Angels Fear to Tread by the same author and on the same period is far better.



In 1985, A Room with a View was nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director.  The film won three awards, for Jhabvala’s adaptation of Forster’s novel, for Best Costume and for Best Production Design.
A Room With a View was also voted Best Film of the year by the Critic’s Circle Film Section of Great Britain, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the National Board of Review in the United States and in Italy, where the film won the Donatello Prize  for Best Foreign Language Picture and Best Director.
US director James Ivory awarded with the 'Fiorino d'Oro', Florence, Italy - 05 Oct 2017
