Movie Info

This adaptation of D. H. Lawrence's novel Lady Chatterly's Lover stars Sylvia Kristel as Constance Chatterly, the young wife of an emotionally distant aristocrat in 1910's England, who becomes only less accessible to his spouse when he loses the use of his legs in World War I. He gives her leave to take up a lover, but when Constance turns to the bed of the low-born groundskeeper, Mellors (Nicholas Clay), she not only discovers what passionate lovemaking is really like, but also experiences actual intimacy and love for the first time, leading to a dramatic love triangle, and a bevy of subtext about classism and emotional freedome. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Lady Chatterley's Lover

An average romantic drama, but not much happens for most of the movie. It's okay.

Aj V

Super Reviewer

Good, beautifully love story and an erotic masterpiece with Emmanuelle sex goddess Sylvia Kristel.

Dean McKenna

Super Reviewer

For a movie that's 105 minutes long, there isn't much going on. The movie could have been half as long and told the same story. It is a very romantic story, but her husband was a really strange guy, I wouldn't want to be with him either. Overall, an average romantic drama, with maybe a little more explicit sex than other 80s movies, but nothing spectacular.
