‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’ Netflix’s Romantic Drama Based On 20s Novel

Published

on

We all know that one of the most romantic films is “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” based on a 20th-century novel by D.H. Lawrence. The reasons range from the passionate love story to Lady Constance’s yearning for something more, not just in her marriage but in life itself. However, as with any film adaptation of a Victorian novel, it wasn’t always easy to show sex and nudity on the screen which was still very taboo for Hollywood at the time. Netflix has released its version and it will be interesting to see what happens with this film after the ban on films dealing with sexual content. Our sources say the film had a run time of around 2 hours. Despite this, it has been released on Netflix and is available to view at the moment. After release, there are going to be a lot more people watching movies about sex or LGBTs. The difference between this new version of “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” and previous versions will be in the way it is shown on screen rather than with words alone as was done before.

Who is in the cast:

  • Emma Corrin as Lady Chatterley
  • Jack O’Connell as Oliver Mellors
  • Matthew Duckett as Sir Clifford Chatterley
  • Joely Richardson as Mrs. Bolton
  • Ella Hunt as Mrs. Flint
  • Faye Marsay as Hilda

Release Date:

On the 25th of November, the film was released in selected cinemas in the UK and USA, and on the 2nd of December, the film is out on Netflix.

What is the film about?

The story is set in England in the early 1900s when society frowned upon relationships outside of marriage and Lady Constance Chatterley was no exception. She was married to Sir Clifford who had become paralyzed after being injured in the war and she had little affection for him. Her life was dull and plain and though she attempted to spice it up, she never found fulfillment. She began a passionate love affair with her husband’s game warden, Oliver Mellors, but they were discovered by Sir Clifford who violently opposed their relationship. What ensued was an asylum case that went all the way to the British courts as they tried to decide whether or not Lady Chatterley could be divorced by her husband so that she could marry her lover.

What makes this film interesting? 

There will be a lot more people who have never seen “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” before. There are many reasons to see it but the most important is the yearning for passion in life and not just any passion, but love. The idea of the movie is that these two characters want something different from what they currently have so they cannot be happy with what they currently have. Their ultimate goal is to find a way to be happy in their lives and not just be content with what their life is now. 

Who can watch this film? 

The film has an R rating and is considered to be too mature for people under the age of 17. However, if you are over the age of 17 and have not read or seen “Lady Chatterley’s Lover,” many older fans of romance will say you should watch this film because it is one of the greatest romance stories out there right now. As far as those who have not seen the movie or would like to see it again. This story is one that most people learn in their high school English class so they are very familiar with what happens in the story but not with how graphic it can be on screen.
