Lady Chatterley’s Lover is a 2022 drama movie directed by Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre starring Emma Corrin and Jack O’Connell. Another adaptation of the novel written by D.H. Lawrence.
The erotic awakening of a dissatisfied woman, in this well-known story that has been adapted with exquisite photographic flair.
Lady Chatterley, disenchanted in her marriage, despite leading a life of wealth and privilege, gets involved in a torrid affair with a gamekeeper on their English estate. The passion she discovers and level of intimacy is beyond what she ever imagined.
The provocative story by D.H. Lawrence that gave so much to talk about and became a revelation in its era. Beyond the literary analysis – and keeping in mind that it is not the first erotic novel in history (to be read the irony), it did have substance and was wonderfully written.
In this adaptation Lady Chatterley almost virtuously loyal to the novel, and particularly in essence and the naturalistic approach to the characterizations and its sensual perspective, which respects the rhythm and counts on a fantastic performance by Emma Corrin. The director and the lead actress know how to relay to us a portrait that is faithful to the literary piece, in an aesthetic formulation that offers us a great movie.
It will not be to the liking of the audience members who seek a light viewing experience, as it gives an intimate, deeply psychological story. In this movie it enters and explains, in the way the novel did, the reasons for the transformation.
