Howards End (1992) w/ Course Curriculum Committee

  • HowardsEnd

USA | 140 min | PG | BluRay | Dir. James Ivory

Encounter of three social classes of England at the beginning of the 20th century : the Victorian capitalists (the Wilcoxes) considering themselves as aristocrats, whose only god is money ; the enlightened bourgeois (the Schlegels), humanistic and philanthropic ; and the workers (the Basts), fighting to survive. The Schlegel sisters' humanism will be torn apart as they try both to softly knock down the Wilcox's prejudices and to help the Basts.

Elegant and powerful, accommodating collisions of class and temperament with the grace of a perfect Edwardian hostess, Howards End is the work to which all Merchant Ivory's other films have pointed and aspired. - Richard Corliss (TIME magazine)

 

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
