Directed by Pascale Ferran
"The most frankly sensual movie in memory," (Los Angeles Times) Pascale Ferran's intelligent, deeply moving, and exquisitely photographed Lady Chatterley brings D.H. Lawrence's most celebrated and notorious literary work to the screen in a way that "feels bracingly fresh, vital and modern" (New York Times).
Robbed of intimacy by her blueblood husband's war injuries, Constance Chatterley (Marina Hands The Barbarian Invasions, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) longs for the emotional fulfillment and physical passion that her marriage lacks. When she espies the gamekeeper Parkin (Jean-Louis Coullo'ch) unselfconsciously bathing, stripped to the waist amidst the beauty of nature, she experiences a sexual awakening unlike anything she has ever dared to desire. Though separated by the boundaries of social convention, rough-hewn Parkin and high-bred Lady Chatterley unite in a love that is simultaneously innocent and erotic, a spiritual connection that transcends personal inhibitions and class prejudices.
