Maurice is a deeply moving 1987 British romantic drama directed by James Ivory, and based on the novel by E.M. Forster (which was published posthumously in 1971). The film is set in the rigid and repressive social milieu of pre-World War I Edwardian England and narrates the coming-of-age story of the titular character Maurice Hall (James Wilby). It traces Maurice's struggle with his homosexuality, from his days at Cambridge University, where he falls in love with his classmate, Clive Durham (Hugh Grant), to his subsequent relationship with the gamekeeper Alec Scudder (Rupert Graves). The film is celebrated for its strong performances and the honest handling of its subject matter.
