Amongst their esteemed circle of early-20th-century British intellectuals, the affinity between the forthright, tomboyish painter Dora Carrington (Emma Thompson) and the much older--and gay--essayist Lytton Strachey (Jonathan Pryce) was as immediate as it was improbable. The challenging course of the platonic love they shared over the balance of their lives is memorably chronicled in this nuanced effort. Steven Waddington, Samuel West. Penelope Wilton, Rufus Sewell also star. 122 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English; Subtitles: English (SDH).
