An Intriging Exploration of Gender,
This review is from: Orlando [DVD]  (DVD)
I would highly recommend this cinematic marvel, based on the Virginia Wolfe novel rumoured to be based on a lesbian crush Virginia had on the character behind Orlando. Orlandos' adventures run from the reign of Queen Elizabeth (superbly played by Quentin Crisp) to the present day. During this time he explores love, hate, gender, war, death, life, and in the most beautiful scene a complete transformation from male to female. The film develops the book into a witty, intriging, entertaining and immensly beautiful tapestry of great film making.
