Where Angels Fear to Tread (1991) short review

An E.M. Forster adaptation (surprisingly NOT done by Merchant Ivory) that’s too often overlooked.  Helen Mirren plays a middle aged English woman who falls in love with an Italian man half her age.  She dies (in Italy) leaving a child, and her siblings (played by Helena Bonham Carter, Judy Davis, and Rupert Graves) go to Italy in search of the child.
