Description

Details

The repressed and bourgeois Maurice Hall (James Wilby) tackles the prejudices of Edwardian society as he comes to terms with his sexuality, in this landmark drama from the team behind A Room with a View and Howards End.

From the halls of Cambridge University to the cricket fields of the English gentry, this profound tale of emotional and sexual awakening features star-making performances from Wilby, Hugh Grant and Rupert Graves, and perfectly captures the fears and joys of submitting to a forbidden desire.

Described by The Guardian as ‘undervalued and underseen’ and a pre-cursor to the James Ivory-scripted Call Me By Your Name, Maurice is a landmark film as important as any in the history of gay cinema and one that presents a positive and enriching portrait of first love.
