    The repressed and bourgeois Maurice Hall (James Wilby) tackles the prejudices of Edwardian society as he comes to terms with his sexuality, in this landmark drama from the team behind A Room with a View (1985) and Howard's End (1992). From the halls of Cambridge University to the cricket fields of the English gentry, this profound tale of emotional and sexual awakening features star-making performances from Wilby, Hugh Grant and Rupert Graves, and perfectly captures the fears and joys of submitting to a forbidden desire. Described by The Guardian as undervalued and underseen and a pre-cursor to the James Ivory-scripted Call Me By Your Name (2017), Maurice is a landmark film as important as any in the history of gay cinema and one that presents a positive and enriching portrait of first love. Special Features: Interview with James Ivory and Pierre Lhomme on the making of Maurice (16 mins) On-stage Q&A with James Ivory and Pierre Lhomme, moderated by Nicholas Elliott (23 mins) A Director's Perspective (40 mins): a conversation between James Ivory and Tom McCarthy, the director of Spotlight Short interview with stars Hugh Grant and James Wilby (2017, 5 mins) Deleted scenes (39 mins) Original theatrical trailer 2018 re-release trailer Other extras TBC Fully illustrated booklet featuring an interview with James Wilby, new writing on the film, and full film credits

    Adapted from Evelyn Waugh's Jazz Age satire, A Handful of Dust is a brutal story of a failed marriage with shattering consquences. James Wilby stars as a country gentleman, Tony Last, who loves rattling around his expansive estate, Hetton Abbey. Tony's wife, Brenda (Kristin Scott Thomas), however, pines for London's excitement and commences an affair in the city with penniless aristocrat John Beaver (Rupert Graves). The fallout of Brenda's betrayal includes a family tragedy and creative divorce settlement ultimately undone when fed-up Tony goes on a naturalist trek through Brazil and becomes the hostage of a mad, illiterate explorer (Alec Guinness). One might wonder whether it's more appropriate to laugh or tremble at these events, and director Charles Sturridge's handsome, graceful production ingeniously accommodates the story's streaks of dark comedy and horror. With brief, memorable supporting roles for Anjelica Huston and Stephen Fry.----Tom Keogh

    Everyone knows her name - but few know her story. Fifty years ago the publication of D.H. Lawrence's scandalous novel led to one of the most celebrated obscenity trials of the 20th century. To mark that occasion we present acclaimed director Ken Russell's powerful film version which brings this vivid and extraordinary tale to life. Joely Richardson stars as Lady Chatterley wife to the emotionally and physically paralysed Sir Clifford in a post-war England which finds itself on the cusp of change. The old ways and class divisions have begun to crumble as the bulk of a nation's youth fell in the trenches leaving a downtrodden but emboldened few. As Lady Chatterley bereft of her husband's attention finds a re-awakening in the arms of a working man more is at stake than honour and more is at risk than marriage in this dramatic and passionate re-telling of Lawrence's now classic tale.

But, ironically, he meets and falls in love with Thompson, even as their paths once more intersect with the increasingly miserable young clerk.
