A Room with a View
Cast: Helena Bonham Carter, Julian Sands, Daniel Day-Lewis
A straitlaced young lady gets a chance to let down her hair on a vacation in Florence. Bonham Carter plays the flustered Botticelli beauty with just the right amount of quiver: Will she choose the romantic and free-spirited George or the prim and priggish Cecil?
What Parents Like: The Tuscan countryside beckons and blooms in sharp contrast to well-mannered Edwardian England.
Pucker Up: The impetuous George steals our hearts when he says of his rival: "He's the sort who can't know anyone intimately, least of all a woman. He doesn't know what a woman is. He wants you as a possession, something to look at, like a painting or an ivory box. Something to own and to display. He doesn't want you to be real, and to think and to live. He doesn't love you."
