British Film Festival 2023: Women in Love

(1969, dir. Ken Russell, w/ Alan Bates, Oliver Reed, Glenda Jackson, Jennie Linden)

British Film Festival 2023: Women in Love will finish at approximately 1:19pm.

The battle of the sexes and relationships among the elite of Britian's industrial Midlands in the 1920s. Gerald Crich and Rupert Berkin are best friends who fall in love with a pair of sisters Gudrun, a sculptress and Ursula Brangwen, a schoolteacher. Rupert marries Ursula, Gerald begins a love affair with Gudrun, and the foursome embarks upon a Swiss honeymoon. But the relationships take markedly different directions, as Russell explores the nature of commitment and love. Rupert and Ursula learn to give themselves to each other; the more withdrawn Gerald cannot, finally, connect with the demanding and challenging Gudrun. (IMDB)
