Howards End on Starz
I cancelled my subscription to Starz last year but I might have to resubscribe to watch their new four part adaption of Howards End from the BBC that begins on April 8, 2018. This version by screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan of Manchester by the Sea fame is getting mixed reviews when compared to the original 1992 Merchant Ivory film adaption of the E. M. Forster novel from 1910. There is such a dearth of quality programing on television that I’ll take what I can get flaws and all.
For those of you not familiar with Howards End, it centers on class relations, social conventions, and secrets in turn of the century England as three families collide. It starts Hayley Atwell, Matthew Macfadyen, Julia Ormond, and Tracey Ullman among others in what should be a series worth watching.
Bon weekend !
