Vita & Virginia

British director Chanya Button wipes the dust of a decades-old love story and fashions something brimming with lust and life, aided in part by a moody, electro score from Isobel Waller-Bridge. Meanwhile, British actress Gemma Arterton is on playful form and provides the perfect foil for Elizabeth Debicki’s precise performance as Woolf.
