ORLANDO is a bold, unsentimental re-working of Virgina Woolfs classic novel in which an innocent aristocrat journeys through 400 years of English history - first as a man, then as a woman. ORLANDO is a story of the quest for love, and it is also an ironic dance through English history. Addressing contemporary concerns about gender and identity, the film is remarkably true to the spirit of Virgina Woolf, but it also skilfully adapts the original story to give it a striking, cinematic form. The screenplay is a standard text taught in film schools as a radical and successful adaptation of a classic work. via spinteractive1
