Synopsis

A selection of 20 titles from the Merchant Ivory film library, featuring several of their best-known titles along with lesser-known works. From 'Shakespeare Wallah', the bittersweet tale of a wandering theatrical company in India, which established the company's reputation in 1965, to 1987's 'Maurice', the controversial study of homosexuality in the Edwardian era that launched the career of Hugh Grant, and the poignant 1992 Oscar-winning film 'Howards End' starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson, the Merchant Ivory name is synonymous with sumptuously-produced yet subtly-crafted period dramas. Films are: 'Shakespeare Wallah', 'The Bostonians', 'Heat and Dust', 'Roseland', 'Howards End', 'The Europeans', 'Jane Austen in Manhattan', 'Quartet', 'The Ballad of the Sad Café', 'Savages', 'The Courtesans of Bombay', 'Maurice', 'The Deceivers', 'The Proprietor', 'Autobiography of a Princess', 'In Custody', 'Bombay Talkie', 'The Householder', 'Hullabaloo Over Georgie and Bonnie's Pictures', and 'The Perfect Murder'.
