Lady Chatterley (Emma Corrin, The Crown), a wealthy young woman born into a life of immense privilege, realizes that her marriage to an upper-class former soldier has grown stale. As she grows increasingly physically and emotionally frustrated with her husband, Chatterley falls into a passionate affair with Oliver Mellors, a man working on their English estate. Soon she discovers more intimacy than she thought was possible and must weigh the costs of breaking tradition to start a new life with her lover. A reimagining of D. H. Lawrence’s controversial 1928 novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover is a wildly sensual tale that explores issues of women’s societal roles, and possibilities for true autonomy.
