Eye re-released James Ivory's film Howards End in Dutch film theatres to great success a few years ago. To accompany the brand-new 4K restoration of Maurice, an adaptation of the E.M. Forster novel, Eye also brings Merchant-Ivory productions Heat and Dust, Autobiography of a Princess and Shakespeare Wallah back to cinemas in stunning digital restorations.
A Merchant/Ivory production starring Hugh Grant and James Wilby after the titular novel by E.M. Forster. Loosely based on Forster's own life, the novel describes a love that dare not speak its name in 1914. The novel was not published until 1970. The two lead actors were awarded for their performances at the Venice Film Festival.
James Ivory’s magnificent epic about a woman who finds herself and unravels her past is filled with lush, sensual images of India.
James Mason gives one of the finest performances of his career as the eloquent Cyril Sahib, whose memories of the Maharadja of India are totally unlike those of the Maharadja’s daughter, who prefers to hold on to a nostalgic view of the past.
The elegant and atmospheric Shakespeare-Wallah was the film that put Merchant Ivory Productions on the international film map. James Ivory’s much-lauded film is now regarded as a classic.
Superb performances by star actors Anthony Hopkins, Emma Thompson and Vanessa Redgrave in this film adaptation of E. M. Forster’s titular novel about the complexities of British class society on the eve of WW I.
