Movie Diary 6/17/2015

Howards End (James Ivory, 1992). A pleasing adaptation, and what a cast – the scenes with Emma Thompson and Vanessa Redgrave constitute a master class. Even Ivory’s usual sober attitude is knocked into the occasional swoon (the boat drifting off course into a thicket as two people grope for a long-deferred kiss). Yes, it is possible to miss Merchant Ivory.
