Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A Room With a View is not only uncharacteristically benign for Forster, but also blithely, elegantly funny, which is a fit description of [this]first-rate film adaptation..."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Merchant Ivory's first artistic and commercial hit is a light, well-acted, nicely mounted comedy of manners based on Forster's classic novel; Daniel Day-Lewis steals all of his scenes"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"This is a movie about having the courage to face one's feelings, and to risk intimacy, fully knowing and being known by another person."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"It is an intellectual film, but intellectual about emotions: It encourages us to think about how we feel, instead of simply acting on our feelings."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"James Ivory directs this gentle, poetic, comic film with grace and passion for its characters in this adaptation of the E.M. Forster novel."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
"A lovely-looking film that captures Forster's scorn for individuals tethered by class distinctions and conformity."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Glorious romance most likely to appeal to older kids."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"t's hard to believe A Room with a View cost so little; the costumes and sets are dazzling and the acting is superb -- from two-time Oscar-winner Smith to the smallest role, there's not a false note."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"This is a complete movie, full of life, love and hope. While we may occasionally forget that truth is beauty and beauty truth, thankfully films like A Room With a View will always be there as a reminder."
‑ Dan Jardine, Apollo Guide
