HOWARDS END SCREENPLAY PDF

Go see it. The new 4K print is gorgeous, the performances splendid. The actors seem to have been captured at a moment of particular glory. In this strange and disturbing political season, a reconsideration of the Wilcoxes, the Schlegels, and the Basts—whose stories stir in us thoughts about pragmatism, good intentions, character, industry, poverty, and respect—somehow feels useful. The films are beautiful to look at; they give your mind and soul much to work with as you stare, enraptured; they stick with you; and they act as enticements to read the novels, which offer broader and deeper pleasures, in the form of sentences that you will want to revisit again and again. Every summer, I reread a Forster novel or two, often by listening to an audiobook.

Howards End is a romantic drama film based upon the novel of the same name by E. Forster , a story of class relations in turn-of-theth-century Britain. The film — produced by Merchant Ivory Productions as their third adaptation of a Forster novel following A Room with a View in and Maurice in — was the first film to be released by Sony Pictures Classics. In , the film received nine Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. In Edwardian Britain, Helen Schlegel becomes engaged to Paul Wilcox during a moment of passion, while she is staying at the country home of the Wilcox family, Howards End.

The Schlegels are an intellectual family of Anglo-German bourgeoisie , while the Wilcoxes are conservative and wealthy, led by hard-headed businessman Henry. Helen and Paul quickly decide against the engagement, but Helen has already sent a telegram informing her sister Margaret, which causes an uproar when the sisters' Aunt Juley arrives and causes a scene. Months later, when the Wilcox family takes a flat across the street from the Schlegels in London, Margaret resumes her acquaintance with Ruth Wilcox, whom she had briefly met before.

Ruth is descended from English yeoman stock, and it is through her family that the Wilcoxes have come to own Howards End, a house she loves dearly. Over the course of the next few months, the two women become very good friends, even as Mrs. Wilcox's health declines. Hearing that the lease on the Schlegels' house is due to expire, Ruth on her death bed bequeaths Howards End to Margaret. This causes great consternation to the Wilcoxes, who refuse to believe that Ruth was in her "right mind" or could possibly have intended her home to go to a relative stranger.

The Wilcoxes burn the piece of paper on which Ruth's bequest is written, deciding to ignore it completely. Henry Wilcox, Ruth's widower, begins to develop an attraction to Margaret, and agrees to assist her in finding a new home. Eventually he proposes marriage, which Margaret accepts. Some time before this, the Schlegels had befriended a young clerk, Leonard Bast, who lives with a woman of dubious origins named Jacky.

Both sisters find Leonard remarkable, appreciating his intellectual curiosity and desire to improve his lot in life. The sisters pass along advice from Henry to the effect that Leonard must leave his post, because the insurance company he works for is supposedly heading for bankruptcy.

Leonard takes the advice and quits, but has to settle for a job paying much less, which he eventually loses altogether due to downsizing. Helen is later enraged to learn that Henry's advice was wrong; Leonard's first employer had been perfectly sound. Months later, Henry and Margaret host the wedding of his daughter Evie at his Shropshire estate. Margaret is shocked when Helen arrives with the Basts, whom she has found living in poverty. Considering that Henry is responsible for their plight, Helen demands that he help them.

However, Jacky becomes drunk at the reception, and when she sees Henry she recognises and exposes him as a former lover from years ago. Henry is embarrassed and ashamed to have been revealed as an adulterer in front of Margaret, but she forgives him and agrees to send the Basts away. After the wedding, Helen, upset with Margaret's decision to marry a man she loathes, leaves for Germany, but not before having sex with Leonard. Margaret and Henry marry, with the pair arranging to use Howards End as storage for Margaret and her siblings' belongings.

After months of only hearing from Helen through postcards, Margaret grows concerned. When Aunt Juley falls ill, Helen returns to England to visit her, but when she receives word that her aunt has recovered, avoids seeing Margaret or any of her family. Fearing that Helen is mentally unstable, Margaret lures her to Howards End to collect her belongings, only to turn up herself with Henry and a doctor.

However, on first glance she realises that Helen is heavily pregnant. Helen insists on returning to Germany to raise her baby alone but asks that she be allowed to stay the night at Howards End before she leaves. When Margaret requests this from Henry, he stubbornly refuses and the couple bicker. The next day, Leonard, still living unhappily in poverty with Jacky, leaves London and travels to Howards End to see the Schlegels. When he arrives he finds the pair, as well as Henry's brutish eldest son Charles.

Charles quickly realizes that Leonard is the baby's father and begins assaulting him for "dishonouring" Helen. In his rage, Charles beats Leonard with the flat of a sword, and Leonard grabs onto a bookcase for support. The bookcase collapses on him, which causes Leonard to have a heart attack and die. Margaret tells Henry that she is leaving him to help Helen raise Helen's baby, and Henry breaks down, telling her the police inquest will charge Charles with manslaughter.

Henry and Margaret are still together, and living with Helen and her young son. Henry tells the others that, upon his death, Margaret will receive Howards End—but no money, at her own request. Dolly points out the irony of Margaret's inheriting the house, revealing Mrs. Wilcox's dying wish to Margaret for the first time. Henry admits to what happened, and Margaret appears to forgive him. Orion Pictures , the film's distributor, was on the verge of bankruptcy and only contributed a small amount to the overall budget.

Eventually Japanese companies including the Sumitomo Corporation , Japan Satellite Broadcasting, and the Imagica Corporation provided the bulk of the film's financing. The distribution problem would be solved when the heads of Orion Classics departed the company for Sony Pictures , creating the entirely new division of Sony Pictures Classics. Howards End was the first title distributed by this new division. Anthony Hopkins accepted the part of Henry Wilcox after reading the script, passed to him by a young woman who was helping edit Slaves of New York and The Silence of the Lambs simultaneously in the same building.

James Ivory was unaware of Emma Thompson before she was recommended to him by Simon Callow , who made a small cameo as the music lecturer in the concert scene. According to James Ivory, although Vanessa Redgrave was his preferred choice for the role of Ruth Wilcox, her participation was uncertain until the last moment, because she was committed to other projects and it took some time to negotiate an acceptable salary.
