Books on Film: 'A Room with a View'
Based on the E.M. Forster classic:
Lucy and her aunt, on holiday from their homes in Edwardian England, find themselves in a windowless room in an Italian pensione. Things take a turn for the better, however, when a generous swap is made. The young woman's life changes as she becomes acquainted with the exuberant and single-minded George, but not without resistance. George asks the eternal question, but does Lucy have the answer?
