      A superbly-mounted adaptation of E.M. Forster's tale of British class tension, with exceptional performances all round, Howard's End ranks among the best of Merchant-Ivory's work.

      Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle Adapted from E.M. Forster's novel of human connections and follies, this newest film from the James Ivory / Ishmail Merchant / Ruth Prower Jhabvala team is close to flawless. Rated: 4/4 Jan 11, 2023 Full Review Jeff Menell Hollywood Reporter From start to finish, Howards End is a sumptuous visual delight. But the beauty of this film is far more than skin deep. Mar 5, 2020 Full Review Lizzie Francke Sight & Sound A more troubling and rigorous inquest into a bygone era than usual. Aug 1, 2017 Full Review Farah Cheded A Good Movie To Watch Simmering with rich emotion and crackling with class politics, Howards End is the crowning glory of the Merchant Ivory powerhouse and the rare perfect period drama. Rated: 89/100 Aug 12, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy The best of the countless Merchant Ivory productions. Rated: 3.5/4 May 9, 2023 Full Review Josh Larsen LarsenOnFilm ...an uneven work of adaptation. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 12, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Zinjx W Another one from the Merchant/Ivory assembly line. An incredibly fine ensemble has been put together. Not on par with "Rest of the Day" Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/07/24 Full Review Blu B A Classic Period Drama. It's really well done all around with standout performances by Hopkins & Thompson who are really good together. Solid musical score but I wish it was a bit more memorable like everything else is. The setting is very memorable, great camerawork and production value all around, and everything pops in this nicely. This is a bit on the slow side throughout but especially the first 30 minutes or so takes a little while to get going. All the story lines do come together in the end but it defintely can be a little hard to keep track of things especially in the start when it's not clear who the focus is as it sets everything up. Once Thompson becomes the main focus and the will happens it takes a big step up in quality and focus. That being said there are things like her sister that I did lose track of because it was a little hard to follow but the family drama and direction more than made up for it. As with all period piece drama/romances like this even though this is really well done it isn't necessarily for everyone. The dialouge is modern enough where you really won't have any problem following the main beats. If your a big fan of any actors in this, the director, or period peice dramas than give this a watch for sure. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Christian K Predictably good scenery and performances, but the story on a whole offers nothing for me. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Alec B Often a bit too obvious but the cast is superb. I'm not sure if anyone either than Hopkins and Thompson could have played their perspective roles. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Purav Jha Inspired by E.M. Forster's novel about human connections and follies, James Ivory, Ishmail Merchant, and Ruth Prower Jhabvala's latest picture is nearly perfect. Howards End is a masterfully done period piece that embodies the passion and sophistication of a nearly lost cinematic tradition. It is a tribute to the narrative and character development of a format that is almost completely gone today. I read it from https://english.shabd.in/howards-end-e-m-forster/book/10277810 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/23/23 Full Review Derya S watched last weekend after a long time. it is a good film. Emma Thompson's warm performance is so nice. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews
