Rarely have source material, director, and leading actress been more in alignment than in this adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel, directed by Sally Potter and starring Tilda Swinton, who slips effortlessly into the role of the male nobleman who awakens halfway through the film to find himself a woman. Skipping across centuries of English history, Woolf refracts her ageless hero(ine)’s fantastical exploits through the archly poker-faced prism of historical biography. Many of the book’s events are inspired by the life of Woolf’s lover, Vita Sackville-West. [SEE AUG. 18-19.] 

--Slant

“SUMPTUOUS AND WITTY” --Film4

“Orlando's consciousness, like his/her gender, is a delightful work-in-progress.” --Philadelphia Inquirer

“Opulent, cheeky, and fun as hell. Woolf would be proud.”

--Woman in Revolt
