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 (1985) and Howard's End (1992).
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 (2017), 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.
