Vita & Virginia FILMFEST MÜNCHEN 2019 - Spotlight
Rio Filmpalast, Kino 1, München (Details)
In the early 1920s, Virginia Woolf is an established author in London's artistic circles. Her friendship with charismatic aristocrat and literary colleague Vita Sackville-West turns into a long-standing affair that flouts the conventions of their time. This liaison inspired one of Woolf's best-known novels, "Orlando". This historical drama offers an adventurous and stirring approach to the story of Vita and Virginia. It's based on the stage play of the same title by Eileen Atkins, which in turn was based on letters the two women wrote to each other. Atkins collaborated with director Chanya Button on the screenplay. This love story, brought to life through and through by strong women, is complemented by the excellent casting of Gemma Arterton and Elizabeth Debicki in the two leading roles.
