A Maori (Anzac Wallace) escapes from prison and hides in a Maori community in late-1950s New Zealand.
Director: Merata Mita
The team of producer Ismail Merchant and director James Ivory has created another classy film of a classic novel with their stunning adaptation of E.M. Forster's Maurice. [24 Sep 1987]
To director James Ivory's credit, however, he has recreated that period in pre-World War I England and endowed the platonic passion between two upper-class Englishmen with singular grace in Maurice. [25 Sep 1987]
The film is so well made and acted, because it captures its period so meticulously. show more
