A Passage to India is a 1984 historical drama that captures the tense relationship between the British and the Indians during the colonial period. In the late 1920s India, British expatriate Mrs. Moore (Peggy Ashcroft) has been showing her son's fianc'', Adela (Judy Davis), the sights and sounds of the country. Both women share a desire to meet and understand the local community in contrast to the other British residents. Mrs. Moore recently met an Indian doctor, Dr. Aziz H. Ahmed (Victor Banerjee), who has adopted the Western style of dress and manners, and asks him to join her and Adela on a trip to some local caves, a sightseeing highlight. After the trip, Adela accuses Aziz of molesting her in the caves. Aziz denies the charges, but soon finds the entire British government against him as they want to make an example to the Indian population. Directed by David Lean ("Lawrence of Arabia"), this exotic and political drama was adapted from a novel by E.M. Forster.moreless
