Based on a true story, Vita and Virginia details the passionate relationship between literary trailblazer Virginia Woolf (Elizabeth Debicki), and enigmatic aristocrat Vita Sackville West (Gemma Arterton).
When their paths cross, the magnetic Vita decides the beguiling, stubborn and gifted Virginia will be her next conquest, no matter the cost. The ensuing relationship leads to the birth of Woolf’s bold experimental novel, Orlando. A daring celebration of a unconventional bond, and a vivid exploration of gender, sexuality, creativity and passion, Vita and Virginia details the love story of two women – two writers – who smashed through social barrier to find solace in their forbidden connection.
In cinemas from Friday 5th July, here’s a trailer for the movie:
