Sally Potter’s dazzling adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s classic novel is the tale of the apparently immortal Orlando, who begins an epic quest for love and freedom in the court of Elizabeth I as a man, and completes the search 400 years later as a woman. This journey takes Orlando across the frozen river Thames in pursuit of a Russian princess, into Central Asia (where he changes sex), through the experience of romantic love - and loss - in the Victorian age and then motherhood (and war) in the twentieth century - before finally arriving in the present moment. Tilda Swinton leads an outstanding international cast in this enchanting, witty, visually beguiling and brilliantly original story of self-discovery, romance and adventure.
