Drama • PG • 1992 • 2 hr 22 min
Classic Merchant-Ivory production. Everything is lovely, and perfectly paced.
A decent movie that shows the difference in class which is visible throughout the film.
Poetic and beautiful, with Emma Thompson giving a tremendous performance.
Brings the book vividly to life. Superb cast.
The pinnacle of Merchant-Ivory film. Well-paced, romantic, political, and a sumptuous visual period piece.
Intelligent but slow adaptation of a classic novel. Emma Thompson is great, but this isn’t her best role. Class issues are fascinating imo.
Excellent Romantic drama, with amazing acting from all, moving and emotional story
Very very very Slow but beautiful Film all the same
Really beautiful, but Rupert Graves’ song is definitely the best part
It's anticlimactic, slow and unambitious, though it's performances are good.
