Review
Encounter of three social classes in England at the beginning of the century; the capitalists, the Wilcoxes, whose only god is money, consider themselves as aristocrats, the enlightened bourgeois Schlegels and the proletarian Basts. 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. Essentially the same story as Room With A View, nobody marries beneath their station and class is everything, but with a distinct element of tragedy. The sumptuous settings and costumes plus an outrageously talented and very British cast create a deservedly acclaimed masterpiece.
