Maurice: Merchant Ivory’s Landmark Film Gets Classy Blu-ray Package!

Maurice (pronounced Morris) is a landmark film. Based on E.M. Forster’s novel, it is the first (or one of the first) film to depict a gay love story with a happy ending. It also clearly depicted the attitude toward homosexuals in the Edwardian era – and how courageous it would have been to be oneself in those days. If that was all Maurice did, that would be enough, but it’s also a very, very good film.

As part of the Chen Film Collection, Maurice gets a classy package with some excellent bonus material.
