- The dying Ruth Wilcox (Vanessa Redgrave) wishes to leave her country home, Howards End, to Margaret Schlegel (Emma Thompson), a modest woman of little means who will soon be forced out of her own home in London. But Ruths husband, Henry (Anthony Hopkins), an upper middle class businessman, keeps secret her desire even after he and Margaret become friends. However, after Henry and Margaret marry, their class differences and philosophies threaten to cause them unhappiness. Margarets sister, Helen (Helena Bonham Carter), is disgusted by the Wilcoxs snobbish ways and is attracted to helping struggling clerk Leonard Bast (Sam West) improve his position.
