James Wilby [Yokasta]
OMG!!! I’ve never seen this vid before, he’s sooooo adorable and cute!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ *squeeeeeee* James baby’s happy :3 ♥ ♥ ♥
Oooohhh!!! ♥ He’s having a whale of a time! Happy James, happy everyone! But did they tell James he’s in a film about flamenco? ;D
Between not-exactly-flamenco!James and baby!James’s face when Dawn French threw herself at him physically, my week is now officially made.
Great find - and lovely sunrise.
Are we sure those are actors and not camera angles? I think maybe C (for Cain, Rupert’s character) and S are the people?
Yup, that looks suitably sci-fi. *Nods*

What an fascinating-looking film – and doesn’t James look lovely! Thanks for finding this.
According to the IMDb it’s only 30mins long. (And the press kit materials [x] currently look like artwork without the synopsis text, etc, added, grrr.)
But Yocasta’s screenwriter Martin Spellman has some serious and really interesting past (UK) credits. Back in the 1980s he scripted The Who’s cult Mod film Quadrophenia, Babylon (a turning-point black British film), and Defence of the Realm, the political thriller that first made Gabriel Byrne a star. Such a shame this doesn’t seem to be a full-length feature film…
Not sure if your video link (in your related gif post) works in my territory…I’ll give it another look once I’m back next week.
One person with passion is better than forty people merely interested.
I am almost not crying. What took me so long to see this film. Unf babies.
Maurice is one of my favourite books. So want to see the film.
I am quite interested in reading the book now! :)
If your fandom becomes hardcore and you’re interested in the film deleted scenes or alternate unpublished versions of the book, there’s lots about that on my blog. See my ‘deleted scenes’ and ‘merchant ivory collection’ tags – or, for earlier versions of the book, ‘abinger edition’ and my ‘maurice 1914’ buttons and tags. (Where I post some of the loveliest extracts from Forster’s earliest alternate drafts of Maurice, sometimes with caps or gifs.)
Oh, and the novel also had an abandoned Epilogue (Maurice/Alec living together as woodcutters after the ending) – which Forster scrapped because he though it was ‘bad’, but you can read it here…
Just for fun… If you’re on Twitter, why not share what you’ve been up to this morning while you were #notonabeachwithRupert?
If you’re not on Twitter - why not share it here? :)
…because I thought it was a twitter exclusive! :)
Stuck working at home waiting for a delivery. About to make blinis in a Slendertone because I can’t get to the gym. #notonabeachwithRupert

And young Rupert Graves … ;3

Sam and Rupert! Some of these (no. 7 especially) deserve thought-bubbles…

*Swoons* Handsome prince James Wilby and Straggletag/princess Alison Doody get their romantic fairytale ending – with a little help from her animal friends and Jim Henson’s Creature Shop… ;)

It’s French and Saunders as the ugly sisters!* Handsome prince James Wilby doesn’t look happy.
(With bonus Edward Tudor-Pole – aka the prosecution lawyer who calls Prentice ‘a loaded gun’ in Different for Girls, or ‘of Tenpole Tudor fame’ if you’re old enough to remember the Sex Pistols first time round…)
*Specially for doubleadrivel, with many thanks for pointing this out.
Which was bizarrely necessary due to my distraction by James.

Thank you, Susie. ;) From us all. [x]
(Now who’s going to volunteer to pop over and help Susie with the kids…?)
I would…but then there’s always the danger of a “Jude Law” as soon as Rupert returns from watching sunrises ;)
“Jude Law”: oh dear. I hope that isn’t why ‘Susie does the lion’s share of the work [and] we don’t have a nanny.’ [x] (Though that quote’s from 8 years ago … I like to think she has some help by now when they need it!)
