A ROOM WITH A VIEW (1986)

Summary

Nominated for eight Oscars in 1986, including Best Picture, and winner of three, this Merchant Ivory production beautifully adapts E.M. Forster's novel about a proper young lady's romance with a free-spirited chap that she meets in Italy. "A Room with a View" tells 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 two suitors--the passionate George (Julian Sands) and the priggish but socially suitable Cecil (Daniel Day-Lewis). The film contains witty dialogue and artful direction in a distinctly British style, and is the epitome of the Merchant Ivory period romance.

This film is not rated but contains sensuality and one scene of male frontal nudity.
