Vita and Virginia

Director: Chanya Button
Starring: Isabella Rossellini, Elizabeth Debicki, Gemma Arterton
Duration: 110 min

Adapted from Dame Eileen Atkins’ stage play of the same name, this is the fascinating story of the affair and friendship between two authors uncompromising in their insistence to live, love and create to the fullest.

Socialite Vita Sackville-West (Gemma Arterton, THEIR FINEST, THE ESCAPE) and literary icon Virginia Woolf (Elizabeth Debicki, THE NIGHT MANAGER, WIDOWS) run in different circles in 1920s London. Despite the odds, the magnetic Vita and the beguiling Virginia forge an unconventional affair, set against the backdrop of their own strikingly contemporary marriages. Their relationship would inspire one of Woolf’s most iconic novels, ‘Orlando’.

Contains moderate sex, sex references and nudity.
