Such an emotional movie, and so engaging! This is exactly what I'm hoping for when I choose a movie - I want it to be so captivating that I keep thinking about it after.

A Wonderful Film
Verified purchase
I have been a fan of this film for over 20 years. The confusion and pain that both Maurice AND Clive experience due to their true love, desire and need for each other, but can never fully show towards one another is so heartbreaking. How Clive tried to keep Maurice in his life, while also marrying Anne showed how desperate he was in needing to keep up appearances. Yet, if Clive hadn't done that, Maurice would have never met Alec Scudder. A man, who was able to say "Damn Everyone Else", because he wasn't going to allow anyone else from keeping him happy and being with Maurice. It's one of the first HEA films that featured two gay male characters, that was initially released back in 1987. Amazing!!
