Emma Corrin and Jack O’Connell staring Lady Chatterley’s Lover dared to defy societal norms. The latest film adaptation of DH Lawrence’s novel retains that spirit. They embarked on a steamy affair. It presents a tender love story where one might expect a raunchy period redo of Fifty Shades of Grey.
The film feels at first a faithful adaptation of the controversial novel. Emma Corrin is starred as the aristocratic Connie Reid and Jack O’Connell as her gamekeeper lover, Oliver Mellors. There are no self-aware winks to the camera, no sudden bursts of punk rock music. Its timeless themes are also rather timely and that too in a society where men rarely acknowledge their inadequacies and repeatedly assert control over others lives.

This is when the town begins gossiping about Connie’s indiscretions and her husband lashes out at her for besmirching the family name.
Their early scenes together are fraught with a heady combination of tension and excitement. But youthful attraction makes way for a sense of familiarity and comfort as the movie itself matures into something more staid.
After a failed attempt at becoming a writer,Sir Clifford, busies himself with bullying those less privileged than himself. Lady Chatterley’s Lover would’ve taken a sleaziershape, under somebody else’s direction. It continues to be felt even in the film’s knee-shaking coda. It could’ve come across like the cinematic equivalent of a summer fling feels like an epic romance.
