Film details

Socialite Vita Sackville-West (Arterton, The Escape) and literary icon Virginia Woolf (Debicki, Widows) run in different circles in 1920s London. Despite the odds, the magnetic Vita and the beguiling Virginia forge an unconventional affair, set against the backdrop of their own strikingly contemporary marriages; which inspired one of Woolf’s most iconic novels, Orlando.
