A Room with a View (1986) E.M. Forster's turn-of-the-century novel about Edwardian manners is expertly adapted for the screen. Lucy (Helena Bonham Carter) travels to Florence with her chaperone (Maggie Smith) in tow. There, Lucy meets and falls for a fellow countryman's moody son (Julian Sands). But like any proper Englishwoman of that era, she must fight her feelings … and it's a losing battle. Merchant-Ivory's first big hit won a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar.
“The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd is a quiet story about a young girl who lives in the deep South during the 1960's. As she comes of age, she runs away from her unhappy home with her widowed father, in search of her mother's roots; ultimately to try to find out who she is. I have shared this book with many. It will always be one of my favorites.
