LADY CHATTERLEY

“We've got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.” - Lady Chatterley's Lover Lady Chatterley, adapted from D.H. Lawrence's celebrated novel, tells of the awakening of a married woman who ‘finds' herself through an affair with another man. The first of Lawrence's books to be brought to the screen by a female director, this work explores the intricate mechanisms and complexities of a woman's sexual desire. Winner of 11 awards, including Best Director at this year's Lumiere Awards and Best Film at César Awards. “Every frame of the movie seems alive: with risk, with pleasure, with a sensuality that is both wild and intelligent.” - New York Times
