  • Cast: Judy Davis, Victor Banerjee, Peggy Ashcroft, James Fox, Alec Guinness

Meticulous adaptation of E.M. Forster has Australian Judy Davis cast as the young woman travelling through the sub-continent with her fiancé's stuffy mother (Ashcroft). Overlong and over-rated, for all its attention to detail, this numbingly slow latter-day Lean seriously fudges the crucial scene in the Malabar Caves. A disappointment.
