A tale of passion, bravery and defiance, Maurice is adapted from E.M. Forster’s intensely personal novel.
Completed in 1914 it remained unpublished until after Forster’s death in 1970. Compellingly honest and beautifully written, it offers a powerful condemnation of the repressive attitudes of British society, and is at once a moving love story and an intimate tale of one man’s erotic and political self-discovery.
Maurice is a plea for emotional and sexual honesty, and it criticises the repressive attitudes of British society.
