WATCH: Former co-stars Hugh Grant and James Wilby talk about the gay love story ‘Maurice’

The stars of James Ivory’s 1987 film, based on the book by E.M. Forster, talk about how attitudes to on-screen LGBTQ+ love stories have changed – both among audiences and film crews – since they starred in the romance together.

Maurice stars Wilby as Maurice Hall, a Cambridge university student who falls in love with Grant’s character at a time when homosexuality was still illegal.

  1. Maurice was such an important movie in my early youth. I went to see it on the cinema twice, and this was pretty uncommon to say the least (I even bought the book). Every little gesture of affection had such a big effect given that was so uncommon, even taboo, on those times; Maurice basically was a watershed in movies between the all-bad-or-just-mockery portrayal of gays and a dramatic-but-yet-hopeful one. Finally we began to exist and could be something else than purported crime, immorality, disease and shallow sex but love and hope. And almost every movie afterwards was a step up for better times. Having an eye on “A Very English Scandal” too.

    I too own the book and movie, fell in love with both for so long… the actors as well like Rubert Graves
