About social mores in turn-of-the-century England, the well-loved Howards End was made into a Merchant Ivory film starring Emma Thompson, Vanessa Redgrave, Helena Bonham Carter and Anthony Hopkins in the early 1990s and adapted for the BBC once before in 1970.
"I'm very proud to have been entrusted with this adaptation of Howards End for the BBC," said Lonergan. "The book belongs to millions of readers past and present; I only have the nerve to take it on at all because of the bottomless wealth and availability of its ideas, the richness of its characters and the imperishable strain of humanity running through every scene."
