Orlando

imagesBased on one of my favourite books, this film was well known for featuring the wonderful Quentin Crisp as Elizabeth I, just about the best casting EVER! A wonderful film that try’s to encompass such a vast book in just 93 minutes. Dreamily shot and featuring a wonderful performance from a young Tilda Swinton. This book is based on the novel by Virginia Woolf, she referred to this as her love letter to Vita Sackville West – oh to receive such a letter! The film obviously can’t compare to the book but I love the timelessness of it! A classic!
