Overlong but impeccably crafted screen version of the E. M. Forster novel, in which a young Edwardian man slowly but movingly comes to terms with his homosexuality in the face of widespread bigotry. Although over-indulgent, the film uses beautiful locations, a 'Brideshead2-style cast and a langorous evocation of pre-War Britain to sweeten an angry pill about the strictures of the class system and the unchanging face of prejudice. Wilby is a revelation in the title role, skilfully capturing the complexity of the emotional traumas faced by his character.
