It is an intellectual film, but intellectual about emotions: It encourages us to think about how we feel, instead of simply acting on our feelings.

This is a movie about having the courage to face one's feelings, and to risk intimacy, fully knowing and being known by another person.

This is a complete movie, full of life, love and hope. While we may occasionally forget that truth is beauty and beauty truth, thankfully films like A Room With a View will always be there as a reminder.

A lovely-looking film that captures Forster's scorn for individuals tethered by class distinctions and conformity.

A Room With a View is not only uncharacteristically benign for Forster, but also blithely, elegantly funny, which is a fit description of [this]first-rate film adaptation...

Without [Helena Bonham Carter], A Room with a View would have been merely a Masterpiece Theater litany of ripe character actors spouting the king's English. With her, it breathes like a newlywed on honeymoon.
