Recommend this event
E M Forster's posthumously published novel was considered too strong for publication during his lifetime. Co-adapted by Ivory and partly filmed in the British Museum, it is a moving account of a love story. The emotional difficulties of gay life in Edwardian society and the constraints of class are beautifully conveyed by a stellar cast.
This screening on 2 July will be introduced by Richard Parkinson, British Museum curator and author of A Little Gay History: Desire and Diversity across the World, a guide to key museum objects for the LGBT community.
