This remarkably tender and touching adaptation of Lawrence's famous story of the lady of the manor's affair with a lowly gamekeeper features superb performances and beautiful cinematography. Hands plays Lady Constance Chatterley as a conscientious but childlike wife whose need for sexual fulfilment leads her to break her vows. The whole affair is imbued with a wild and intelligent sensuality that avoids descending into mere vulgarity.
