Will Starz’s ‘Howards End’ limited series repeat awards success of the 1992 movie that won 3 Oscars?

Starz’s new limited series adaptation of “Howards End” is positioning itself to do very well at the 2018 Emmys, much like the 1992 film of the same name. The movie “Howards End” won three Oscars and was also nominated for Best Picture. The limited series has rave reviews and could easily rack up multiple nominations at this year’s Emmys.

Based on the novel “Howards End” by E.M. Forster, the limited series tells the story of Margaret of the bourgeoisie Schlegel family, who is bequeathed the titular country home by Ruth, an aging member of the wealthy Wilcox family, which causes an uproar between the families. Hayley Atwell is cast as Thompson’s Oscar-winning role of Margaret, while Julia Ormond plays Ruth, for which Vanessa Redgrave was nominated for an Oscar.

Hayley Atwell (‘Howards End’) says the relationships between women are ‘the beating heart of the whole piece’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

The Starz limited series “Howards End” is ostensibly a romance between headstrong Margaret Schlegel (Hayley Atwell) and the wealthy but emotionally repressed Henry Wilcox (Matthew Macfadyen), but Atwell thinks the bonds between the women are “the most important relationships in the story.” Margaret has deep affection for her sister Helen as well as a “platonic yet strange love affair” with Henry’s first wife Ruth (Julia Ormond), and those emotional connections are “the beating heart of the whole piece.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Atwell above.

Howards End” is based on the 1910 novel by E.M. Forster, which was previously adapted into a famous 1992 Merchant Ivory film that won Emma Thompson the Best Actress Oscar for playing Margaret. Atwell had seen the film, but she didn’t re-watch it before putting her own spin on the role. “I know Em and spoke to her about it, and she was adamant

TV Review: ‘Howards End’ on Starz

If there were no Merchant Ivory film, Starz’s “Howards End” would be a more welcome adaptation. The four-part miniseries, an adaptation of E.M. Forster’s 1910 novel about class collision and national identity in turn-of-the-century England, is impeccably cast and studiously performed. But the bones of the production, adapted by prominent playwright Kenneth Lonergan and directed by Hettie Macdonald, lacks the impeccable grace and subtlety of both the earlier adaptation and the source material. Lonergan’s screenplay is so disinterested in logistics that it just skips them; especially towards the end of the four-parter, “Howards End” lets weeks, months, or

‘Howards End’ Review: Kenneth Lonergan’s Gorgeous Starz Adaptation Is Filled With Bold Performances and Plenty of Fun

‘Howards End’ Review: Kenneth Lonergan’s Gorgeous Starz Adaptation Is Filled With Bold Performances and Plenty of Fun
For fans of costume dramas, “Howards End” is like a quick hit of “Downton Abbey” cut with the cinematic beauty of any Keira Knightley flick. For everyone else, it’s even better.

The first thing you’ll notice about Kenneth Lonergan’s superb adaptation is its speed — which is an odd and exciting quality for a four-hour British period drama that begins with, ends on, and is titled after an old house. The focus may be a stationary locale, but the pace is aptly quick. Before you can you stop to think “Why do we need another adaptation of ‘Howards End’?”, 15 minutes have flown by and you’re already enraptured by the Wilcox and Schlegel families.

Credit goes to all the elements that make similar genre fare stand out — the costumes, performances, telling glances, and detailed sets — but what makes this Starz limited series feel all its own is a conscious dismissal of certain civilities.

Trailer Watch: Hayley Atwell Is Proud of Her Independence in “Howards End”

Howards End”: Starz

A trailer has arrived for Hayley Atwell-starrer “Howards End.” Starz’s upcoming period drama sees the “Agent Carter” alumna playing Margaret, a young woman who lives in London with her sister Helen (Philippa Coulthard) and brother Tibby (Alex Lawther). “You are really the most peculiar girls,” Aunt Juley (Tracey Ullman) tells Margaret and Helen. She proceeds to describe Margaret as being “so independent,” and coming from her, that’s not a compliment. Juley clearly wants Margaret to rely on someone in particular — a husband.

“Since the death of their parents and despite their interfering Aunt Juley’s best intentions, the sisters lead independent and slightly unorthodox lives,” the official synopsis for the four-episode series details. “After meeting the wealthy and conservative Wilcox family on holiday, Margaret forms a friendship with the older and more traditional Ruth Wilcox (Julia Ormond).
