That's today's attempt at humour/humor? Apparently he owned a chip shop in Nottingham. It's got to be one of my best blog titles?
Seriously. We watched the latest film adaptation of David Herbert Lawrence's book the other night. It's on Netflix: Lady Chatterley's Lover.
We probably have all read the book and seen the films made about a loving affair between the social classes.
Do you think a Lady would have an affair with a Gamekeeper? I would like to think that it could be possible.
The two lead actors are amazing. Jack O'Connell played Mellors the Gamekeeper and his Derbyshire accent really makes it sound like a character from where DH Lawrence was born
Emma Corrin who played Constance Chatterley is incredibly beautiful and reminded me of Lady Di in her facial mannerisms. Apparently she played Diana in The Crown? I haven't seen it have you?
Joely Richardson plays Mrs Bolton. Her Nottingham/Derbyshire regional accent is very accurate and I remember her when she played Mrs Chatterley in the BBC adaptation thirty years ago,
I thought it was not a very good film ending but the passion and acting was first class.
Anyone else seen the film?
I love watching English Literature Classics brought to life on screen. If you are a believer in having a zest for life and Pantheism then this film is worth seeing.
