What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Howards End is a 1992 romantic drama based on the novel by E.M. Forster. There's talk of sexual and extramarital affairs and liaisons, including mention of a past affair between a 16-year-old girl and a married and much older man. Upon seeing this older man at a social event 10 years later, the woman proceeds to get extremely drunk and belligerent, clearly upset by what happened. There's some violence, including a man being killed after he's punched and then struck with the dull side of a sword before falling into a large bookcase that falls on top of him. Pipe, cigar, and cigarette smoking are shown. Overall, the movie's slower pace and adult themes make this best for teens and adults, who might use it as a starting point to discuss how the movie conveys relations between the sexes and economic classes during Edwardian England, and what has and hasn't changed since that time.
