Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: "A Room With a View" (1986)

Criterion Collection is out this week with A Room With a View,  the classic that introduced the world to Merchant-Ivory (they'd been around before but this was their big breakthrough) and a young Helena Bonham Carter. A period romance done about as well as it could possibly be, with an absolutely unforgettable score to match. Sweeping romance comes into a young girl's life as she decides to go for her heart's desire over the stuffy suitor (an unrecognizable Daniel Day-Lewis) she's supposed to marry for her family's sake. A gorgeous, sumptuous, overtly romantic story that still catches you up in every moment.
