Details

Screenplay by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, adapted from the novel by Henry James

Still, the film has a lot more going for it than simply Thurman's emerald green ensemble. That it falls far short of such Merchant Ivory favorites as A Room with a View and Howard's End is undeniable, but the visual splendor -- starting with the opening scene, which is played out as shadows on the wall of an ancient castle -- proves great enough to outweigh the emotional disappointments.
