“★★★★★ – a candid, lucid, passionate film" – Guardian
Released in 1987, Merchant Ivory's exquisite adaptation of EM Forster's novel is a moving portrait of repression, love and acceptance, starring Hugh Grant and James Wilby.
In the years before the First World War, two men meet at Cambridge University and fall in love, but a friend’s conviction for indecency leads them to attempt to suppress their feelings.
Screening as part of LGBTQ+ History Month in partnership with De Montfort University’s DMU Pride.
Prior to this screening there will be a special "In Conversation" event with Professor Claire Monk, a leading expert in Merchant Ivory films at De Montfort University, and Ash Kotak, a curator, filmmaker and journalist, who was a personal friend of Ismail Merchant.
