Merchant-Ivory in Love

6 Films on Screen

Ismail Merchant and James Ivory shared a life together, both personally and professionally. As producer and director, respectively, of twenty-five feature films over more than forty years, their impact cannot be overstated. While often dealing with issues of India and its diaspora, the pair hit a commercial and critical sweet spot by adapting early twentieth century novels by Henry James and E. M. Forster. These films frequently portray romances that cross class division, filled with longing and disguised emotions. In February, the Dryden will screen six of these films, including one that will screen after the Eastman Museum Council’s Valentine’s Day Brunch.
