Hugh Grant, James Wilby, Rupert Graves
UK 1987. 140min
Set against the backdrop of oppressive Edwardian society, Maurice (based on the novel by EM Forster) follows the life of Maurice (Wilby), who struggles to come to terms with his sexuality and the complexities of class after he faces rejection. A poignant and timely tale, this unadulterated queer love story speaks to internalised homophobia while touching on prevalent nuances that exist within the LGBTQIA+ community.
