The Maurice The Merrier

Merchant Ivory’s much loved and lauded 1987 film adaptation of EM Forster’s classic gay novel, Maurice makes a welcome return to the IFI this month. Starring Hugh Grant at peak fringe-floppiness, and James Wilby as the winsome titular character, this swooning, dreamy romance about the love that dare not speak its name was adored by critics upon its initial release, but sunk like a brick at the box office. It was felt that the general movie -going public was not quite ready for a big screen male love story, with a Guardian review saying audiences felt it was “put bluntly, too gay”.

About GCN

We’ve got so much to talk about in this month’s issue, we’d better get started! Leading the charge is our cover star Conor O’Brien, the voice behind The Villagers. Conor dropped in to talk about their new album and what it’s like being an out gay man in the business. On a further musical note, Irish electro band Eden celebrate 20 years in the industry. They had many a tale to tell and GCN was delighted to listen! The GAZE film festival takes over cinema screens this month so we caught up with Desiree Akhavan, the writer and director of the much-lauded gay conversion therapy film The Miseducation Of Cameron Post, along with the creators of the essential documentary Outitude, detailing the history of Ireland’s lesbian community. On a more serious note, Evgeny Shtorn details his escape from Russian persecution only to be caught in the bureaucracy that is Ireland’s Direct Provision System. Plus Jamie Brady provides a hard-hitting photo essay on the effects on Grindr on the young male psyche. With all that awesome content on offer, you better start reading now!
