The life of a Cambridge homosexual in repressed times.
E. M. Forster's novel about ëthe unforgivable vice of the Greeks' is brought to the screen in typical Merchant Ivory style.
Rich in atmosphere, its leisurely pace dwells on repressed passions in Edwardian society as James Wilby's Maurice falls for charismatic Cambridge chum Clive Durham (Hugh Grant), only to find him insistent on platonic love.
One of Merchant Ivoryís finest.
