Set against the stifling conformity of pre-World War I English society, E.M. Forster's Maurice is a story of coming to terms with one's sexuality and identity in the face of disapproval and misunderstanding. Maurice Hall and Clive Durham find themselves falling in love at Cambridge. In a time when homosexuality was punishable by imprisonment, the two must keep their feelings for one another a complete secret. After a friend is arrested and disgraced for 'the unspeakable vice of the Greeks', Clive abandons his forbidden love and marries a young woman. Maurice however, struggles with questions of his identity and self-confidence, seeking the help of a hypnotist to rid himself of his undeniable urges. But while staying with Clive and his shallow wife, Anne, Maurice is seduced by the affectionate and yearning servant Alec Scudder, an event that brings about profound changes in Maurice's life and outlook. Sparkling direction by James Ivory, distinguished performances from the ensemble cast, and a charged score by Richard Robbins all combine to create a film of immense power, one that is romantic, moving, and a story of love and self-discovery for all audiences.

Maurice is a 1987 film based on the novel by E. M. Forster. A tale of homosexual love in early 20th century England. The film was directed by James Ivory and produced by Ismail Merchant. It stars James Wilby as Maurice, Hugh Grant as Clive and Rupert Graves as Alec.

The film dramatises the dangers of Edwardian homosexuality and we see Maurice undergoing hypnosis from Dr. Lasker-Jones in a desperate attempt to "cure" himself, Maurice also reveals to the doctor that he has slept with Alec Scudder. Lasker-Jones warns Maurice that at one time homosexuals were executed in Britain and he suggests that Maurice consider relocating to a country where homosexuality is not illegal and more tolerated, like France or Italy.

Maurice asks if England will ever change its attitudes towards homosexuality, to which Lasker-Jones replied that "England has always been disinclined to accept human nature."

The film is full of beauty and passion, but is also a social commentary full of guilt, self hatred and fear.

 The best gay film ever

This film is blilliant from beginning till end. Amongst all the trash gay films out there this is really a joy to watch. Although 25 years old this movie is timeless.
