Only connect...

Howards End is an English novel by E.M. Forster, published in 1910. It deals with class differences in post-Victorian society. In 1992, it was adapted into a film starring Emma Thompson, Anthony Hopkins, Vanessa Redgrave and Helena Bonham-Carter.

The two main characters are Margaret and Helen Schlegel, who become involved with the upper-class Wilcox family, who own the eponymous house, and with Leonard and Jacky Bast, who are on the verge of poverty. As the story progresses, the three families intersect in many different ways.
