E.M. Forster’s Howard’s End and Kazuo Ishiguro’s Remains of the Day are considered two of the twentieth century’s finest British novels by two of Britain’s most celebrated writers. The outstanding filmmaking team of Ismail Merchant and James Ivory produced award-winning films based on the adaptations of screenwriting legend Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. Each literary work will be discussed first, then we’ll take a close look at how successfully the filmmakers transformed the book’s ideas and characters into cinema.

Books: Howard’s End, E.M. Forster; Remains of the Day, K. Ishiguro
