Synopsis

David Lean made a comeback after a 12 year absence with this Oscar-winning adaptation of E.M. Forster's novel. Judy Davis plays Miss Quested, a young English woman, recently arrived in India, who accuses the seemingly humble Dr Aziz (Victor Banerjee) of raping her during a trip to the Marabar caves. The subsequent trial lays bare the tensions which exist between the native population and the British colonialists, as well as the sexual repression which lurks under the surface of the polite society the British attempt to recreate on foreign soil.
