      In , E. M. Forster’s tale—both the novel and the Merchant Ivory film adaptation—is a balm for the mind and the soul. There was something about Edwardian England and EM Forster’s view of it that captivated American director James Ivory, Indian producer Ismail Merchant and German screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. Costing $ million, Merchant Ivory’s interpretation of this novel transformed the company’s fortunes after it grossed over $60 million.

    Structured as an informal chat between two friends, the book is quite readable, a solid resource for scholars of Merchant Ivory films as well as an in-depth study of Ivory's directorial. The collaborative team of producer Ismail Merchant and director James Ivory – plus, often, screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, a key contributor to most of their finest films – are best remembered for a handful of period pieces from the s and early 90s, including literary adaptations of E.M. Forster (A Room with a View, Maurice, Howards End), Henry James (The Europeans, The Bostonians.

Ismail Merchant and James Ivory, The film producer-director team of Merchant and Ivory celebrated their 35th anniversary as creative partners in and, along with screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala (who wrote the majority of their films), were identified by the Guinness Book of World Records as cinema’s longest-running partnership. The two had produced an unequaled string of impressive low.
