  • Roger Ebert

    The splendid cast embodies the characters so fully that the events actually seem to be happening to them, instead of unfolding from a screenplay.

  • Peter Travers

    Incisively witty, provocative and acted to perfection, this sublime entertainment is a career peak for producer Ismail Merchant, director James Ivory and screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala.

  • Terrence Rafferty

    A handsome and intelligent piece of work: a faithful, well-paced, and carefully crafted dramatization of a very good story.

  • Staff(not credited)
