Directed by Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre (The Mustang), Lady Chatterley’s Lover stars The Crown’s Emma Corrin as Lady Constance Chatterley, whose happy marriage to Sir Clifford Chatterley (Matthew Duckett) soon turns sour when he returns wounded and scarred from World War I. No longer able to walk, Clifford treats his wife as a nursemaid, leaving her more lonely than she thought possible. For a while, Constance’s only companion is housekeeper Mrs. Bolton (Joely Richardson, who in fact played Constance in Ken Russell’s 1993 TV series adaptation). But things change when she meets Oliver Mellors (Jack O’Connell), the new gamekeeper for the couple’s English estate. What begins as a tentative flirtation soon explodes into a mess of passion and sexual discovery that threatens to unravel Constance’s entire existence. A Netflix release
