Lady Chatterley

Alliance Française de Toronto

In the Chatterleys’ country estate, one monotonous day follows another for Constance, trapped by her marriage and her sense of duty. During spring, deep in the heart of Wragby forest, she encounters Parkin, the estate’s gamekeeper. Drawing on the most scandalous summer romance in English literature, Pascale Ferran turns DH Lawrence’s long-proscribed novel, at the time condemned for obscenity, into a powerful and sensual tale of love and anode to nature. The film won five awards at the French César, including Best Actress, Best Cinematography, Best Adaptation and Best Picture.
“It’s the most beautiful love story in the world because it’s the most revolutionary.” - Pascale Ferran
