"A Room with a View"
Watched most of the PBS version of "A Room with a View." It was all right. The actress who played Lucy did a good job. I didn't like this George Emerson though. But it did make it more clear why George was not desirable. When I saw the Merchant-Ivory version I always thought, why does Lucy hesitate to hook up with George? Julian Sands is hot and his dad is embarrasing but sweet. But this George makes it more clear of the class distinction. His accent is not refined and his lower class is mentioned at least twice. Julian Sands did not emphasize his lower class enough in the movie. But he looked good.
