Eric’s Favorites ☞ Maurice

esq-MauriceC-E-Favorites-SEAL-120x120MAURICE remains the most romantic movie I have ever seen. The boat house scene takes my breath away. I won’t say more if you haven’t seen it, but if you’re looking for a big, beautiful, romantic love story that just happens to be about two men? Well, then this is your picture. It sure is mine. I’ve had a crush on Rupert Graves ever since I first saw this film. Based on the equally recommendable E.M. Forster novel, I think MAURICE is Hugh Grant’s first movie and I know it’s the best film Merchant/Ivory has ever done. And that’s saying something, given I love everything they’ve ever done. Seeing men passionate about each other at a movie theatre in 1987 was enough to make me swoon. Even now in this age of insta-porn, the effect, on me at least, is still the same as it was then and that’s what makes MAURICE one of my very favorite films.

Buy “Maurice” from Amazon or just buy the whole Merchant/Ivory collection for a little more
