Film: A Passage to India

Taj Mahal, Agra
I just saw the 1984 film, A Passage to India, by the late Sir David Lean.  What a fantastic film!  Judy Davis, Victor Banerjee, James Fox, and Dame Peggy Ashcroft gave it their all- doing justice to the 1926 novel by E.M. Forster.  This fabulous film reminded me of the Anglo Indian rage back in New York of the 1980's, remember British Khaki, by Robert Leighton ?  Check out this iconic production- it's a great story about the decline of the British rule in India- with the most amazing cinematography. Enjoy!  Cheers!  DF *****
