] Can anyone tell me who is in it and the year it came out? Is it a British film?...or American?
It is a 1986 film, a Merchant Ivory Production. It stars Helena Bonham Carter as Lucy, Maggie Smith as Charlotte, Julian Sands as George, and Daniel Day Lewis as Cecil.
By the way, the screenplay is by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, who herself is a fine novelist. Her stories are mainly set in India, where she spent her married life. My favorite book by her is The Nature of Passion, and my next favorite is Amrita: or to Whom She Will.
