Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
Set in pre-World War I England, this film concerns the coming of age of two young men who meet at Cambridge and fall in love. It brilliantly dissects the moral hypocrisy of Edwardian England as Maurice and Clive struggle with the desires of their hearts and the rigid constraints of society.

Great story! The movie makes me want to read the book. I was pleasantly surprise by the cast and their great roles. It was great to see a period piece where gay characters love each other and want to be happy!

Worthwhile viewing from Merchant/Ivory. This classic gay love story by E.M.Forster about an upper-crust master and a game-runner actually has a happy ending. Watch Hugh Grant portray a closet homosexual: what a stretch. See Rupert Graves' bush and tush. Quite a stretch.
