I didn't see a thread for it, but [Ruth Prawer Jhabvala|http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/04/movies/ruth-prawer-jhabvala-writer-dies-at-85.html?hp&_r=0], who wrote the screenplays to a bunch of the Merchant-Ivory movies, has died at the age of 85.

So sorry to hear this, the passing of a giant! I guess my favorite of her films is A Room with a View. Someone said she wrote David Lean's A Passage to India, but in fact Lean wrote the screenplay himself. Now that Jhabvala and Merchant are gone, only James Ivory is left, of that great trio of filmmakers!

She was one of my heroes, starting a new career in screenwriting decades behind others, and finding a unique voice in storytelling. She deserved the honors presented in her career.

 

RIP. I will thank you again each time I watch one of these beautiful stories awaken on the screen.
