This book examines these important films, and the debate about their politics and their meanings, and about their relationship to the heritage industry. It maps the extent of the production trend, and looks in detail at the commercial context in which the films were funded, marketed and exhibited, in both the UK and the USA. There are also extensive case studies of two key films, Howards End and Elizabeth."@en ;
