North American Premiere
In 1960, the British Crown prosecuted the publisher Penguin for publishing DH Lawrence’s book Lady Chatterley’s Lover, the unadulterated story of an aristocrat’s passionate affair with her gamekeeper. For six days, prosecutors and lawyers debated the literary qualities of the book, in which sex is discussed openly. This documentary sheds light on the history of a landmark novel previously blacklisted in England, offering a glimpse into key moments of a historic trial. The portrait of a work, and an era, shaped by major social upheavals.
