4 out of 10 Watch it
Eilis from Wicklow, 06 Oct 2010
A timeless classic based on the wonderful novel by EM Forster with a great line up of acting talent- a disturbing, atmospheric and unflinching look at the mores, moods and madness of the British Raj in India and their relationships with each other and the unfortunate Indians who served them and observed them. EM Forster never wanted this book to be made into a film. Well worth watching. Sex Class and Culture potpourri.

Adela Quested (Judy Davis), a sheltered, well-educated British woman, arrives in the town of Chandrapore, where she hopes to experience the real India....
