One of the biggest hits from the early days of the Cinema Arts Centre returns to the big screen! Glenda Jackson, Alan Bates, and Oliver Reed star in Ken Russell’s muscular adaptation of D.H. Lawrence’s brilliant novel about sexual freedom and repression in 1920 England.

With this film, the audacious Ken Russell vaulted onto the international stage, drawing on the psychosexual radicalism of D. H. Lawrence’s classic novel to shatter taboos in his own time. Set in an English mining community on the crest of modernity, Women in Love traces the shifting currents of desire that link the emancipated Brangwen sisters (Jennie Linden and an Oscar-winning Glenda Jackson) to a freethinking dreamer (Alan Bates) and a hard-willed industrialist (Oliver Reed)—as well as the men’s own erotically charged friendship. Coupling earthy sensuality with kaleidoscopically stylized images, Russell pursues this quartet to the heights of agony and ecstasy, crafting a breathtaking drama of human sexuality at its most liberating, dominating, and destructive extremes. (UK, 1969, 131 Min., R, English| Dir. Ken Russell)
