Lady Chatterley's Lover

Once banned for obscenity, this new adaptation of DH Lawrence’s classic novel, starring British actors Emma Corrin and Jack O’Connell questions everything we know about Lady Chatterley and her reputation as a sexpot. This is sensual, subtle, evocative filmmaking with respect for its heroine and the courage it took to assert herself.
