Maurice (1987) short review

Another wonderful Merchant-Ivory adaptation of an E.M. Forster novel, this one gets high ratings for great characters and a more complex plot than usual. The title character is a man coming to terms with his homosexuality and trying to find love in Edwardian England, which is no small feat. The ever foxy Rupert Graves plays one of his love interests (Hugh Grant is the other). The only down side is that because most of the main characters are men, there isn’t TOO much female costume eye candy (although there is a bit)
