Introduction and Q&A with award-winning playwright Matthew Lopez (THE INHERITANCE)
4K Restoration A trailblazing landmark of LGBTQ cinema set against the stifling conformity of pre-World War I English society, Merchant Ivory’s stunning screen adaptation stars Hugh Grant and Clive Durham as Cambridge students who find themselves falling in love while coming to terms with their sexuality and identity in the face of disapproval and misunderstanding.
MAURICE is based on the novel by E.M. Forster, who plays a prominent role in the award-winning play THE INHERITANCE. As the play reveals, Forster wrote the explicitly gay novel in 1913 when he was a young man, but did not allow it to be published until after his death in 1971.
