A Room with a View ( Blu-ray )

"A Room with a View" is the film that defined Merchant-Ivory as the masters of the romantic period piece and this exceptional adaptation of E.M. Forster's novel ranks among their finest works. Telling the story of the coming of age of Lucy Honeychurch (Helena Bonham Carter), longing to burst free from the repression of British upper class manners and mores, she must wrestle with her inner romantic longings to choose between the passionate George (Julian Sands) and the priggish but socially suitable Cecil (Daniel Day-Lewis). Features a brilliant supporting cast including Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Denholm Elliot and Simon Callow.
