Synopsis

Immortality and a change of sex was the elegant and witty way in which Virginia Woolf dealt with the mysteries of gender, death and history in her novel ORLANDO. Sally Potter's visually captivating film, based lovingly on the book, provides 'a beautiful historic pageant of 400 years of English history, full of grand visual and aural pleasures, sly jokes,emotional truths - and romance.' Time Out.

Orlando's humanity is wittily encompassed by the magnificent Tilda Swinton supported by an idiosyncratic cast including Quentin Crisp as Queen Elizabeth lst. A stunning visual treat.
