A Passage To India
From the acclaimed director of Lawrence of Arabia_ Doctor Zhivago and The Bridge on the River Kwai_ Sir David Leans last ever feature film is a magnificent work which earned two Oscars® for its rich_ evocative score and a superb performance by Dame Peggy Ashcroft. A Passage to India is 'a wonderfully provocative tale_ full of vivid characters_ all played to near perfection' (The New York Times). With the directors 'strongest cast in years' (Time Out) including Judy Davis_ James Fox_ Sir Alec Guinness_ and Nigel Havers. When liberal-minded English ladies Mrs. Moore (Ashcroft) and Adela Quested (Davis) arrive in India_ theyre shocked by the prejudice that exists there. The gentle Dr. Aziz (Victor Banerjee) rises above the intolerance and guides the women on a tour of the splendid and mysterious Marabar caves; but when Adela runs terrified from the caves scratched and bleeding_ news of the incident spreads across the whole of India... igniting a powder keg of tension that has been waiting to explode.
