Room With A View, A (ITV 2007, Timothy Spall, Elaine Cassidy)

Timothy Spall and his son Rafe appear together for the first time as father and son in a new ITV adaptation of E.M. Forster’s novel A Room with a View. This classic drama, set against the backdrop of rural Italy and England in the early twentieth century, tells the story of the impressionable young English woman, Lucy Honeychurch, and her attempts to find love and happiness.

In 1912, chaperoned by her cousin Charlotte, Lucy arrives at an Italian guesthouse looking for adventure. There she meets Mr Emerson and his unusual son George, who offer their room with a view to the newcomers.
