Maurice

Thurs. 6/29 at 7 p.m.

(R-1987) 2 Hrs. 19 Min. (Digital) In English (Drama, Romance)

In celebration of its 30th Anniversary, The State is screening the sparkling new restoration of Maurice, one of the finest films ever made by the iconic Merchant Ivory Productions. Maurice Hall (James Wilby) and Clive Durham (Hugh Grant) find themselves falling in love at Cambridge. In a time when homosexuality is punishable by imprisonment, the two must keep their feelings for one another a secret. After a friend is arrested and disgraced for "the unspeakable vice of the Greeks," Clive abandons his forbidden love and marries a woman. Maurice, however, struggles with 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 wife, Maurice is seduced by the affectionate and yearning servant Alec Scudder (Rupert Graves), an event that brings about profound changes in Maurice's life and outlook.
