Constance, a Lady of the Manor trapped in a bleak, passionless life with a wheelchair-bound husband, experiences an awakening of the senses with her solitary gamekeeper. The familiar story is told here with quiet sensitivity and breathtaking visual beauty, underpinned by restrained yet powerful performances. Ferran's expansive, moving film achieves the near-impossible goal of staying faithful to the text in a uniquely cinematic way.
