Critic Reviews for A Room With a View

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

The adornments to the core story in "A Room With a View" are generally to good effect.

March 4, 2020 | Full Review…

The film lacks verve, and its location shots are tired. The best thing about the production, in fact, is some sprightly music from reliable French composer Gabriel Yared.

This is not a chocolate box drama, it's much more realistic and stays true to Forster's values.

Top Critic

Davies has tacked on a shocking new afterthought of an ending - I'd call it unnecessary, but inventive.

February 24, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

As for Davis' new "twist" at the end ... I think that has altered the whole story from a light-hearted piece of social satire and endearing love story to a sombre drama with an awkward ending.
